Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

$150.0 Million Term Loan

On December 21, 2020, PNM Resources, Inc. (“PNMR”) entered into a new $150.0 million term loan agreement (the “$150.0 Million Term Loan”), between PNMR and U.S. Bank National Association (“U.S. Bank”), as sole lender. The $150.0 Million Term Loan is effective as of December 21, 2020 and has a maturity date of January 31, 2022. PNMR expects to use the proceeds of the $150.0 Million Term Loan for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of indebtedness.

PNMR must pay interest on its borrowing under the $150.0 Million Term Loan from time to time following funding and must repay all amounts on or before the maturity date.

The $150.0 Million Term Loan includes customary covenants, including a covenant that requires the maintenance of a consolidated debt-to-consolidated capitalization ratio of less than or equal to 70%. The $150.0 Million Term Loan also includes customary events of default, a cross default provision, and a change of control provision. If an event of default occurs, U.S. Bank may declare the obligations outstanding under the $150.0 Million Term Loan to be due and payable. Such acceleration will occur automatically in the event of an insolvency or bankruptcy default.

The above description of the $150.0 Million Term Loan is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the entire $150.0 Million Term Loan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

$300.0 Million Term Loan

On December 22, 2020, PNMR entered into a new $300.0 million delayed-draw term loan agreement (the “$300.0 Million Term Loan”), among PNMR, the lenders party thereto (the “Lenders”) and MUFG Bank, Ltd. (“MUFG”), as administrative agent. The $300.0 Million Term Loan is effective as of December 22, 2020 and has a maturity date of January 31, 2022.
