Dear PNM Resources Shareholder,

We are writing to remind you of the importance of voting your shares of common stock at the Special Meeting of Shareholders of PNM Resources, Inc. (“PNMR”, the “Company” or “we”) to be held on February 12, 2021, at 9:00 a.m., Mountain time. We previously sent you proxy materials for the Special Meeting, which describe in detail the proposals listed below. According to our latest records, we have not yet received your vote.

At the Special Meeting, holders of the Company’s common stock, will be asked: (1) Approve the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 20, 2020, or the merger agreement, by and among PNMR, Avangrid and NM Green Holdings, Inc.; and (2) Approve, by non-binding, advisory vote, certain existing compensation arrangements for PNMR’s named executive officers in connection with the merger contemplated by the merger agreement; and (3) Approve one or more adjournments of the special meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies if there are insufficient votes at the time of the special meeting to approve the merger agreement.

The Special Meeting is now only a few weeks away, and it is therefore important that you promptly complete, sign, date and return your proxy card or voting instruction form that accompanied this letter. You can also vote your shares by telephone or the Internet in accordance with the instructions provided in order to make sure that your shares are represented at the Special Meeting in accordance with your desires.

Your vote is important, no matter how many or how few shares you may own. If you have not already done so, please take the time to vote TODAY. If you have recently mailed your proxy card or voting instruction form (or voted by telephone or the Internet), then please accept my sincere appreciation and disregard this request.

If you have any questions, or require assistance in voting your proxy, please contact our proxy solicitor Georgeson LLC toll-free at 877-507-1756.

We appreciate your time and consideration and your continued support.
