Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Amendments to PNMR Credit Agreements
On October 26, 2020, PNM Resources, Inc., a New Mexico corporation (“PNMR”) entered into the Eighth Amendment to Credit Agreement (“PNMR Revolver Amendment”) amending its $300.0 million revolving credit agreement (“PNMR Revolver”), among PNMR, the lenders party thereto, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent. The PNMR Revolver Amendment is effective October 26, 2020 and amends (i) the definition of “Change of Control” in the PNMR Revolver such that the entry by PNMR into the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated October 20, 2020, among Avangrid, Inc., NM Green Holdings, Inc. and PNMR (the “Merger Agreement”) will not be a Change of Control for purposes of the PNMR Revolver, and (ii) the merger negative covenant to replace “enter into any transaction of merger” with “merge with or into any other person.” The PNMR Revolver Amendment also waives the Change of Control and any other event of default arising from PNMR’s entry into the Merger Agreement. Entering into the PNMR Revolver Amendment resulted in the acceleration of the maturity date under the $300 million 364-day revolving credit facility among PNMR, the lenders party thereto, and MUFG Bank, Ltd., as administrative agent, which was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to PNMR’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on October 21, 2020, and such facility is terminated as a result thereof.
On October 26, 2020, PNMR entered into the Second Amendment to Term Loan Agreement (“PNMR $150 Million Term Loan Amendment”) amending its $150.0 million term loan agreement (the “PNMR $150 Million Term Loan”) among PNMR, the lenders party thereto, and MUFG Bank, Ltd., as administrative agent. The PNMR $150 Million Term Loan Amendment is effective October 26, 2020 and amends (i) the definition of “Change of Control” in the PNMR $150 Million Term Loan such that the entry by PNMR into the Merger Agreement will not be a Change of Control for purposes of the PNMR $150 Million Term Loan, and (ii) the merger negative covenant to replace “enter into any transaction of merger” with “merge with or into any other person.” The PNMR $150 Million Term Loan Amendment also waives the Change of Control and any other event of default arising from PNMR’s entry into the Merger Agreement.
On October 26, 2020, PNMR entered into the First Amendment to Term Loan Agreement (“PNMR $50 Million Term Loan Amendment”) amending its $50.0 million term loan agreement (“PNMR $50 Million Term Loan”) between PNMR and Bank of America, N.A., as sole lender. The PNMR $50 Million Term Loan Amendment is effective October 26, 2020 and amends (i) the definition of “Change of Control” in the PNMR $50 Million Term Loan such that the entry by PNMR into the Merger Agreement will not be a Change of Control for purposes of the PNMR $50 Million Term Loan, and (ii) the merger negative covenant to replace “enter into any transaction of merger” with “merge with or into any other person.” The PNMR $50 Million Term Loan Amendment also waives the Change of Control and any other event of default arising from PNMR’s entry into the Merger Agreement.
On October 26, 2020, PNMR entered into a Waiver Agreement (the “PNMR LOC Waiver”) with respect to its $30.3 million standby letter of credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank National Association. The PNMR LOC Waiver is effective as of October 26, 2020 and waives the change of control event of default arising from PNMR’s entry into the Merger Agreement.
On October 21, 2020, the $30.3 million letter of credit facility between PNMR and JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., expired in accordance with its terms.
The above descriptions of the PNMR Revolver Amendment, the PNMR $150 Million Term Loan Amendment, the PNMR $50 Million Term Loan Amendment and the PNMR LOC Waiver are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the entire PNMR Revolver Amendment, PNMR $150 Million Term Loan Amendment, PNMR $50 Million Term Loan Amendment and PNMR LOC Waiver, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.
Amendment to TNMP Credit Agreement and No Bond Repurchase Event
On October 26, 2020,
Texas-New
Mexico Power Company (“TNMP”) entered into the Second Amendment to Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (“TNMP Revolver Amendment”) amending its $75 million revolving credit agreement (the “TNMP Revolver”), among TNMP, the lenders identified therein and KeyBank National Association, as administrative agent. The TNMP Revolver Amendment is effective October 26, 2020 and amends (i) the definition of “Change of Control” in the TNMP Revolver such that the entry by PNMR into the Merger Agreement will not be a Change of Control for purposes of the TNMP Revolver, and (ii) the merger negative covenant to replace “enter into any transaction of merger” with “merge with or into any other person.” The TNMP Revolver also waives the Change of Control and any other event of default arising from PNMR’s entry into the Merger Agreement.

In addition, as previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form
8-K,
dated as of October 20, 2020, filed by PNMR and TNMP, TNMP has $750 million of outstanding First Mortgage Bonds (“TNMP FMBs”) that include a “Bond Repurchase Event” provision. The execution of the TNMP Revolver Amendment means that no Bond Repurchase Event will occur with respect to the TNMP FMBs.
The above description of the TNMP Revolver Amendment is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the entire TNMP Revolver Amendment, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.5 and incorporated herein by reference.

The PNMR Development Revolver Waiver is effective as of October 26, 2020 and waives the cross-default event of default arising from PNMR’s entry into the Merger Agreement and the resulting event of default under the PNMR Revolver.
Also on October 26, 2020, PNMR Development entered into the First Amendment to Term Loan Credit Agreement (“PNMR Development Term Loan Amendment”) amending its $90 million term loan agreement (“PNMR Development Term Loan”) among PNMR Development and KeyBank, N.A., as administrative agent and sole lender.
