(Bloomberg) — Radian Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer S.A. Ibrahim said the mortgage insurer is poised to expand after its first profitable year since 2006.

Radian posted net income of $959.5 million in 2014 after enduring years of losses on guaranties of home loans that were made before the financial crisis. As the company's stock rebounded, Ibrahim reached a deal last year to acquire mortgage-services provider Clayton Holdings. He also sold a bond guaranty unit for about $800 million.
