The company said that it had impaired its investment in RAM Holding in 2008 and reduced the carrying value of the investment to zero. The completion of the sale continues the company’s focus on its core US mortgage insurance operations and the proceeds from the sale will add to PMI Mortgage Insurance liquidity position.
