Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 15, 2020 PNM Resources, Inc.’s indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Texas-New Mexico Power Company (“TNMP”), issued $25,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 2.93% First Mortgage Bonds, due 2035, Series 2020C (the “2020C Bonds”) and $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 3.36% First Mortgage Bonds, due 2050, Series 2020D (the “2020D Bonds” and, together with the 2020C Bonds, the “Bonds”) in a private placement in reliance on an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Bonds were sold by TNMP to institutional accredited investors (as defined by Rule 501(a) of the Securities Act) pursuant to a Bond Purchase Agreement dated April 24, 2020 (the “Bond Purchase Agreement”). In the Bond Purchase Agreement, TNMP agreed to sell the Bonds subject to the satisfaction of certain terms and conditions. TNMP previously sold an aggregate of $110,000,000 First Mortgage Bonds pursuant to the Bond Purchase Agreement on April 24, 2020. The Bonds were issued pursuant to a Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture (as described below). The Bond Purchase Agreement was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to TNMP’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 24, 2020.

The Bonds were issued pursuant to TNMP’s First Mortgage Indenture dated as of March 23, 2009 (the “First Mortgage Indenture”), between TNMP and MUFG Union Bank, N.A. (formerly known as Union Bank, N.A.) (as successor to The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A.), as trustee (the “Trustee”), as previously supplemented and amended and as further supplemented by the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture thereto, dated as of July 15, 2020, between TNMP and the Trustee (the “Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the First Mortgage Indenture, the “Indenture”). The Bonds are secured by a first mortgage lien on substantially all of TNMP’s property, subject to excepted encumbrances, reservations, contracts and other exceptions as are permitted by the Indenture, and rank equally in right of payment with all other securities theretofore or thereafter issued under the First Mortgage Indenture.

Interest on the Bonds is payable semiannually on April 15 and October 15 of each year, commencing on October 15, 2020, at a fixed rate of 2.93% per annum with respect to the 2020C Bonds and 3.36% per annum with respect to the 2020D Bonds. TNMP may, upon not less than ten nor more than sixty days’ prior written notice (unless the holders of more than 50% of the principal amount of the then-outstanding Bonds of the applicable series agree in writing to another time period), prepay at any time all, or from time to time any part of, the Bonds of any series, in an amount not less than ten percent of the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds of such series then outstanding in the case of a partial prepayment, at a prepayment price equal to the sum of (a) 100% of the principal amount so prepaid, (b) accrued and unpaid interest thereon and (c) a make-whole amount, if any, determined for the prepayment date with respect to such principal amount. The principal amount of the 2020C Bonds is payable on July 15, 2035 and the principal amount of the 2020D Bonds is payable on July 15, 2050.

The Indenture contains events of default customary for such a transaction, including, without limitation: failure to pay interest on any Security (as defined in the Indenture) for sixty days after becoming due; failure to pay the principal of or premium on any Security when due; failure to comply with or breach of any covenant or warranty contained in the Indenture, subject to a ninety day cure period after written notice of default has been delivered; and certain events relating to reorganization, bankruptcy and insolvency of TNMP. If an “Event of Default” (as defined in the Indenture) occurs and is continuing, the Trustee or the holders of not less than thirty-three percent in principal amount of the Securities then outstanding may declare the principal amount of all Securities then outstanding to be immediately due and payable.

In addition, the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture contains bond repurchase events (subject to a fifteen day cure period), including, without limitation: actions by TNMP or any Controlled Entity (as defined in the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture) which subject a Bond holder to terrorism sanctions regulations; the sale or lease of TNMP’s assets in excess of specified thresholds during any calendar year; defaults in respect to obligations relating to certain debt; failure to deliver to each institutional investor Bond holder certain financial and business information related to TNMP; failure to maintain a ratio of consolidated indebtedness to consolidated capitalization of less than or equal to 0.65 to 1.0; and material misrepresentations of any representation or warranty contained in the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture. If a “Bond Repurchase Event” (as defined in the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture) occurs and is continuing, TNMP must repurchase the Bonds for a purchase price equal to the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds then outstanding, plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and a make-whole amount determined for the Bond Repurchase Event date with respect to such principal amount.

The Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture further includes a provision whereby a change in control in TNMP or PNM Resources Inc. would obligate TNMP to offer to prepay all of the Bonds at one-hundred percent (100%) of the principal amount of the Bonds, plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, but without any make-whole amount or other premium.





The above description of the Indenture does not purport to be a complete statement of the parties’ rights and obligations thereunder. Such description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.1, and the First Mortgage Indenture, as previously amended and supplemented, and as previously filed, each of which is incorporated herein by reference.

Section 2.05 Make-Whole Amount.
Make-Whole Amount means, with respect to any 2020 Bond, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the Discounted Value of the Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to the Called Principal of such 2020 Bond over the amount of such Called Principal, provided that the Make-Whole Amount may in no event be less than zero; provided further that the Make-Whole Amount shall equal zero with respect to the relevant series of 2020 Bonds if such prepayment occurs (i) on or after the date which is ninety (90) days prior to the Maturity Date of the 2020C Bonds or (ii) on or after the date which is one hundred and eighty (180) days prior to the Maturity Date of the 2020D Bonds. For the purposes of determining the Make-Whole Amount, the following terms have the following meanings:
Called Principal means, with respect to any 2020 Bond, the principal of such 2020 Bond that is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 2.03 or Section 2.07 or is declared to be due and payable pursuant to Section 10.02 of the Original Indenture.
Discounted Value means, with respect to the Called Principal of any 2020 Bond, the amount obtained by discounting all Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to such Called Principal from their respective scheduled due dates to the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in accordance with accepted financial practice and at a discount factor (applied on the same periodic basis as that on which interest on the 2020 Bonds is payable) equal to the Reinvestment Yield with respect to such Called Principal.
Reinvestment Yield means, with respect to the Called Principal of any 2020 Bond, 0.50% over the yield to maturity implied by the yield(s) reported as of 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, on the display designated as “Page PX1” (or such other display as may replace Page PX1) on Bloomberg Financial Markets for the most recently issued actively traded on-the-run U.S. Treasury securities (“Reported”) having a maturity equal to the Remaining Average Life of such Called Principal as of such Settlement Date. If there are no such U.S. Treasury securities Reported having a maturity equal to such Remaining Average Life, then such implied yield to maturity will be determined by (a) converting U.S. Treasury bill quotations to bond equivalent yields in accordance with accepted financial practice and (b) interpolating linearly between the yields Reported for the applicable most recently issued actively traded on-the-run U.S. Treasury securities with the maturities (1) closest to and greater than such Remaining Average Life and (2) closest to and less than such Remaining Average Life. The Reinvestment Yield shall be rounded to the number of decimal places as appears in the interest rate of the 2020 Bond.
If such yields are not Reported or the yields Reported as of such time are not ascertainable (including by way of interpolation), then “Reinvestment Yield” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any 2020 Bond, 0.50% over the yield to maturity implied by the U.S. Treasury constant maturity yields reported, for the latest day for which such yields have been so reported as of the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in Federal Reserve Statistical Release H.15 (or any comparable successor publication) for the U.S. Treasury constant maturity having a term equal to the Remaining Average Life of such Called Principal as of such Settlement Date. If there is no such U.S. Treasury constant maturity having a term equal to such Remaining Average Life, such implied yield to maturity will be determined by
13


interpolating linearly between (1) the U.S. Treasury constant maturity so reported with the term closest to and greater than such Remaining Average Life and (2) the U.S. Treasury constant maturity so reported with the term closest to and less than such Remaining Average Life. The Reinvestment Yield shall be rounded to the number of decimal places as appears in the interest rate of the applicable 2020 Bond.
Remaining Average Life means, with respect to any Called Principal, the number of years obtained by dividing (i) such Called Principal into (ii) the sum of the products obtained by multiplying (a) the principal component of each Remaining Scheduled Payment with respect to such Called Principal by (b) the number of years, computed on the basis of a 360-day year composed of twelve 30-day months and calculated to two decimal places, that will elapse between the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal and the scheduled due date of such Remaining Scheduled Payment.
Remaining Scheduled Payments means, with respect to the Called Principal of any 2020 Bond, all payments of such Called Principal and interest thereon that would be due after the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal if no payment of such Called Principal were made prior to its scheduled due date, provided that if such Settlement Date is not a date on which interest payments are due to be made under the 2020 Bonds, then the amount of the next succeeding scheduled interest payment will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued to such Settlement Date and required to be paid on such Settlement Date pursuant to Section 2.03 or Section 2.07 or is declared to be due and payable pursuant to Section 10.02 of the Original Indenture.
Settlement Date means, with respect to the Called Principal of any 2020 Bond, the date on which such Called Principal is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 2.03 or Section 2.07 or is declared to be due and payable pursuant to Section 10.02 of the Original Indenture.

The offer to prepay 2020 Bonds contemplated by Section 2.06(a) shall be an offer to prepay, in accordance with and subject to this Section 2.06, all, but not less than all, the 2020 Bonds held by each Holder (in this case only, “Holder” in respect of any 2020 Bond registered in the name of a nominee for a disclosed beneficial owner shall mean such beneficial owner) on a date (which shall be a Business Day) specified in such Change in Control Notice (the Proposed Prepayment Date). Such date shall be not fewer than thirty (30) days and not more than sixty (60) days after the date of delivery of the Change in Control Notice.

14


Prepayment Date. A failure by a Holder of 2020 Bonds to respond to an offer to prepay made pursuant to this Section 2.06 shall be deemed to constitute a rejection of such offer by such Holder.
(d) Prepayment. Prepayment of the 2020 Bonds to be prepaid pursuant to this Section 2.06 shall be at one-hundred percent (100%) of the principal amount of the 2020 Bonds together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon but without any Make-Whole Amount or other premium.

On the Bond Repurchase Date, the Company will deposit with the Trustee immediately available funds in an amount equal to the Bond Repurchase Amount and the Trustee shall pay such amount as soon as practicable after receipt thereof to the Holders of such series of 2020 Bonds. Payment of a Bond Repurchase Amount shall be deemed to satisfy and discharge in full the principal of, and Make-Whole Amount, and accrued and unpaid interest on, such series of 2020 Bonds.

(formerly known as Union Bank, N.A.) (successor to The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A.) (herein called the “Trustee”) (said indenture being herein called the “Indenture”), to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto (including the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture hereinafter referred to) reference is hereby made for a description of the properties mortgaged and pledged, the nature and extent of the security, the rights of the registered owners of the First Mortgage Bonds and of the Trustee in respect thereto, and the terms and conditions upon which the First Mortgage Bonds are, and are to be, secured, and for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the First Mortgage Bonds and of the terms upon which the First Mortgage Bonds are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. To the extent permitted by, and as provided in, the Indenture, modifications or alterations of the Indenture, or of any indenture supplemental thereto, and of the rights and obligations of the Company and of the Holders of the First Mortgage Bonds may be made, in certain cases without the consent of the Holders of the First Mortgage Bonds, as set forth in Section 14.01 of the Indenture, and otherwise with the consent of the Company by an affirmative vote of not less than a majority in amount of the First Mortgage Bonds entitled to vote then outstanding, at a meeting of Holders of the First Mortgage Bonds called and held as provided in the Indenture, or by an affirmative vote of not less than a majority in amount of the First Mortgage Bonds of any series entitled to vote then outstanding and affected by such modifications or alterations, in case one or more but less than all of the series of First Mortgage Bonds then outstanding under the Indenture are so affected; provided, however, that no such modifications or alterations shall be made which will affect the terms of payment of the principal of, or interest on, this Security, which are unconditional. The First Mortgage Bonds may be issued in series, for various principal sums, may mature at different times, may bear interest at different rates and may otherwise vary as provided in the Indenture. This Security is one of a series designated as “2.93% First Mortgage Bonds, due July 15, 2035, Series 2020C” of the Company, issued under and secured by the Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto and described in an indenture supplemental thereto (herein called the “Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture”), dated as of July 15, 2020, executed by the Company to the Trustee.
The Company, at its option, may redeem all, or from time to time, any part of the First Mortgage Bonds of this series on not less than ten (10) days’ nor more than sixty (60) days’ notice by first-class mail, postage prepaid as provided in the Indenture at a Redemption Price equal to the sum of the principal amount so prepaid plus the Make-Whole Amount as defined in the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture and upon the other terms and conditions therein and in the Indenture provided.

including interest and, if and to the extent applicable, any Make-Whole Amount, and shall have no responsibility for such calculation.
In the event of prepayment of the First Mortgage Bonds of this series in part only, a new Security of First Mortgage Bonds of this series and of like tenor for the non-prepaid portion hereof will be issued in the name of the Holder hereof upon the cancellation hereof.
The Indenture contains provisions for satisfaction and discharge of the entire indebtedness of the First Mortgage Bonds of this series.
In case an Event of Default shall occur, the principal of all the First Mortgage Bonds at any such time Outstanding under the Indenture may be declared or may become due and payable, upon the conditions and in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.
