IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING

PNM RESOURCES, INC.

DIRECT PLAN

(a stock purchase and dividend reinvestment plan)

Dear Valued Investor:

As previously announced, on October 20, 2020, PNM Resources, Inc., a New Mexico corporation (“PNM Resources”), Avangrid, Inc., a New York corporation (“AVANGRID”), and NM Green Holdings, Inc., a New Mexico corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of AVANGRID (“Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into PNM Resources (the “Merger”), with PNM Resources surviving the Merger as a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of AVANGRID.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, each issued and outstanding share of the common stock of PNM Resources (“PNM Resources common stock”) (other than certain shares held by parties to the Merger Agreement or their wholly-owned subsidiaries or certain Dissenting Shares (as defined in the Merger Agreement)) will, at the effective time of the Merger, be converted into the right to receive $50.30 in cash (the “Merger Consideration”). Following the Merger, PNM Resources common stock will be delisted from the New York Stock Exchange and deregistered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and PNM Resources will no longer be required to file periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission in respect of PNM Resources common stock. Completion of the Merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions and approvals.

As required by the Merger Agreement, PNM Resources has amended the PNM Resources, Inc. Direct Plan (the “Plan” or “PNM Resources Direct”) to terminate the right to purchase shares under the Plan with respect to any cash dividends and first-time or optional cash investments that are not received by noon Eastern Time on November 17, 2020. No purchases of shares of PNM Resources common stock under the Plan will occur after November 18, 2020.

This prospectus supplement (“Supplement”) is dated November 2, 2020 and updates the Prospectus Supplement dated August 3, 2018 to the Prospectus dated March 1, 2018. This Supplement updates certain information in the Prospectus Supplement dated August 3, 2018 to reflect the termination of the right to purchase shares of PNM Resources common stock under the Plan effective November 17, 2020.


Cash Dividend Reinvestment

The Plan Administrator is Computershare Trust Company, N.A. For Plan participants enrolled in the dividend reinvestment portion of the Plan, the Plan Administrator will purchase shares of PNM Resources common stock with the cash dividends received by noon Eastern Time on November 17, 2020 pursuant to the terms of the Plan. Accordingly, the cash dividend payable on November 13, 2020 to holders of PNM Resources common stock of record on November 2, 2020 will be reinvested to purchase shares of PNM Resources common stock pursuant to the terms of the Plan. After November 17, 2020, existing shareholders will not be permitted to have subsequent cash dividends reinvested in additional shares of PNM Resources common stock under the Plan. Instead, any subsequent cash dividends paid on shares of PNM Resources common stock held on the applicable record date will be paid to Plan participants in cash, irrespective of a prior election to have such cash dividends automatically reinvested. Plan participants will receive a check for any subsequent cash dividends unless they have elected under the Plan to have such cash dividends deposited directly into a bank account.

Pursuant to the terms of the Plan, any funds related to the cash dividend payable on November 13, 2020 that are not used to purchase shares of PNM Resources common stock or to pay requisite expenses, if any, by November 18, 2020 will be returned to you as soon as administratively practicable.

First-Time and Optional Cash Investment

Existing shareholders and interested first-time investors also will not be permitted to purchase PNM Resources common stock through first-time or optional cash investments under the Plan that are received after noon Eastern Time on November 17, 2020. For Plan participants who have elected to purchase PNM Resources common stock under the Plan through automatic monthly withdrawals of funds from a bank account, the last scheduled withdrawal occurred on October 26, 2020 and no further withdrawals will be debited after such date. Funds submitted by check or online through Investor Center for first-time or optional cash investments must be received by the Plan Administrator by noon Eastern Time on November 17, 2020.

Pursuant to the terms of the Plan, funds received by the Plan Administrator that are not used to purchase shares of PNM Resources common stock or to pay requisite expenses, if any, by November 18, 2020 will be returned to you as soon as administratively practicable.

Operation of the Plan Subsequent to November 17, 2020

The termination of the right to purchase shares under the Plan effective November 17, 2020 does not affect shares of PNM Resources common stock acquired under the Plan prior to November 17, 2020, nor does it restrict your ability to access your Plan account or sell common stock held in that account pursuant to the terms of the Plan.

Effective upon completion of the Merger and as required by the Merger Agreement, PNM Resources expects to terminate the Plan and expects that each share of PNM Resources common

stock credited to the account of a Plan participant in book-entry form will be converted, in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Merger Agreement, into the right to receive the Merger Consideration (with any Dissenting Shares (as defined in the Merger Agreement) to be treated in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement), to be distributed to each Participant as soon as administratively practicable after completion of the Merger. PNM Resources expects to provide further information regarding the effect of termination on accounts under the Plan.

PNM Resources reserves the right to suspend, modify or terminate the Plan at any time. PNM Resources, together with the Plan Administrator, also reserves the right to change any administrative procedures of the Plan.
