AVANGRID, PNM Resources Merger Agreement Extended

AVANGRID, PNM Resources Merger Agreement Extended

ORANGE, Conn. — April 12, 2023 — AVANGRID, Inc. (NYSE: AGR), a leading sustainable energy company and member of the Iberdrola Group, announced today that it has agreed to extend the merger agreement with PNM Resources (NYSE: PNM) through July 20, 2023. The extension will allow the companies time to continue to work together through the regulatory review process in New Mexico.

“We remain committed to the merger of AVANGRID and PNM Resources, which will bring more than $300 million in benefits to the customers and communities of New Mexico and more than $16 million in rate relief to Texas customers,” said Pedro Azagra, AVANGRID CEO. “Together, we will accelerate Texas and New Mexico’s clean energy futures and increase the focus on reliability and resiliency for customers. We also understand that we are an anchor institution in the communities we serve, beyond just the services we provide. Through this merger, we will contribute to the economic development of the regions and support their continued vibrancy and prosperity.”

The merger has received approval from five federal agencies and the Public Utility Commission of Texas. AVANGRID and PNM Resources together with the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (NMPRC) filed a joint motion at the New Mexico Supreme Court in March 2023 to dismiss the companies’ appeal of the December 2021 NMPRC denial and remand the case back to the NMPRC.
