** Signature of Reporting Person Date
Explanation of Responses:
( 1 )Represents the portions of previous awards of restricted stock rights that vested effective as of March 7, 2017.
( 10 )The options expire 10 years from grant date.
( 2 )Represents shares withheld by PNM Resources, Inc. to satisfy the tax withholding obligations arising in connection with the vesting and settlement of the restricted stock rights award described in (1) above. The company utilizes a modified "share withholding" approach in connection with settling awards of restricted stock rights, in which it (i) withholds (in cash) an amount to satisfy tax withholding obligations and remits such amount to the relevant tax authorities, and (ii) directs a designated broker to purchase on the open market the number of shares of the company's common stock that can be acquired with the after-tax value of the restricted stock right award at the prevailing market price. Only these "net shares" are delivered to the recipient of the vested restricted stock rights award.
( 3 )Each restricted stock right represents a contingent right to receive one share of PNM Resources, Inc. common stock.
( 4 )The restricted stock units vest in three equal annual installments. Vested shares will be delivered to the reporting person on the applicable vesting dates (or, if the company is in a blackout period under its insider trading policy on any vesting date, at a later date after such blackout period ends).
( 5 )The security converts to common stock on a one-for-one basis.
( 6 )The phantom stock shares were acquired under the PNM Resources, Inc. Executive Savings Plan, and will settle upon the Reporting Person's retirement or other termination of service.
( 7 )Total represents phantom stock shares of PNM Resources, Inc. Common Stock acquired under the PNM Resources, Inc. Executive Savings Plan II as of February 28, 2017.
( 8 )Based on the closing price on the date of the grant.
( 9 )The options vest in three equal annual installments from grant date.
