In addition, PNM Resources expects to grant the initial purchasers of the convertible notes an option to purchase, within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the date the convertible notes are first issued, up to an additional $50,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the convertible notes, solely for the purpose of covering over-allotments, if any.

Final terms of the convertible notes, including the initial conversion rate, interest rate and certain other terms of the convertible notes, will be determined at the time of pricing. The convertible notes will be unsecured obligations of PNM Resources and will rank junior and subordinate in right of payment to the prior payment in full of PNM Resources' existing and future senior indebtedness. Interest on the convertible notes will be paid semiannually, subject to PNM Resources' right to defer payments of interest as described below. The convertible notes will mature on June 1, 2054, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms.

So long as no event of default with respect to the convertible notes has occurred and is continuing, PNM Resources may, at its option, defer interest payments on the convertible notes on one or more occasions for up to 20 consecutive semi-annual interest payment periods. During any deferral period, interest on the convertible notes will continue to accrue at the then-applicable interest rate on the convertible notes. In addition, during any deferral period, interest on deferred interest will accrue at the then-applicable interest rate on the notes, compounded semi-annually, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

PNM Resources may not redeem the convertible notes prior to June 6, 2029 except upon the occurrence of certain tax events, rating agency events or treasury stock events (each, a "special event"). PNM Resources may redeem for cash all, but not less than all, of the convertibles notes upon the occurrence of a special event, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the convertible notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. In addition, PNM Resources may redeem for cash all or part (subject to certain limitations on partial redemptions) of the convertible notes, at its option, on or after June 6, 2029, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the convertible notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date, if the last reported sale price of PNM Resources' common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price of the convertible notes then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which PNM Resources provides notice of redemption. In each case, PNM Resources will not, and will not be permitted to, issue a notice of redemption, or specify a redemption date, during any interest deferral period.

Prior to December 1, 2053, holders will have the right to convert their convertible notes only upon the occurrence of certain events and during certain periods. On or after December 1, 2053, holders will have the right to convert their convertible notes at any time until the close of business on the second business day immediately preceding the maturity date of the convertible notes. Upon conversion of the convertible notes, PNM Resources will (1) (a) deliver an equal aggregate principal amount of a newly issued series of its non-convertible junior subordinated notes with the same terms as the convertible notes (other than the conversion features) or (b) in certain circumstances as set forth in the indenture that will govern the convertible notes, pay cash, in either case, up to the aggregate principal amount of the convertible notes being converted, and (2) deliver shares of PNM Resources' common stock in respect of the remainder, if any, of PNM Resources' conversion obligation in excess of the aggregate principal amount of the convertible notes being converted.

If PNM Resources undergoes a fundamental change (as defined in the indenture that will govern the convertible notes), subject to certain conditions and exceptions, holders of the convertible notes may require PNM Resources to repurchase for cash all or any portion of their notes at a fundamental change repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest (including any accrued but unpaid deferred interest) to, but excluding, the repurchase date.

PNM Resources intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to repay a portion of its outstanding term loans.

The offer and sale of the convertible notes, the non-convertible junior subordinated notes issuable upon conversion of the convertible notes, if any, and shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the convertible notes, if any, have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and the convertible notes, such non-convertible junior subordinated notes and such shares of common stock may not be offered or sold without registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
