PNM Resources (NYSE: PNM) today released the company's 2020 third quarter results. In addition, management affirmed its recently increased 2020 consolidated ongoing earnings guidance of $2.23 to $2.31 per diluted share, targeting the midpoint of this range.

"Record temperatures in August contributed to higher third quarter earnings and increased expectations for the year," said Pat Vincent-Collawn , PNM Resources' chairman, president and CEO. "As our customers and communities face the prolonged impacts of this pandemic, our teams continue to look for new ways to provide support through customer financial assistance, non-profit grants and local donations. We remain committed to supporting and serving our customers and rebuilding our communities."

During today's earnings conference call, PNM Resources will highlight recent efforts and achievements aligned with the company's commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles, including increasing support to customers and communities during the ongoing pandemic and partnerships to further clean energy goals. The company recently announced a merger with AVANGRID (NYSE: AGR) that is strategically aligned in the transition to clean energy and commitment to ESG principles and will provide benefits to customers, communities, employees and shareholders.

  • PNM's GAAP and Ongoing earnings increased during the third quarter of 2020, reflecting increases in retail sales from the combined impacts of COVID-19 and record-high August temperatures. Increased residential usage was partially offset by decreased commercial usage due to business restrictions.

  • GAAP earnings were also higher in 2020 as a result of net changes in unrealized gains and losses on investment securities for its decommissioning and reclamation trusts.

  • Earnings were also higher in the third quarter of 2020 due to higher transmission margins and the refinancing of debt at lower interest rates. These increases were partially offset by expected increases in operational spending and the creation of COVID Customer Relief Programs to provide financial assistance towards past-due electric bills. Additional depreciation expense on new capital investments was mitigated by property tax reductions.

  • TNMP's GAAP and ongoing earnings increased in the third quarter of 2020 due to the implementation of Transmission Cost of Service (TCOS) rate increases implemented in September 2019 and March 2020 and a Distribution Cost of Service (DCOS) rate increase implemented in September 2020 . These increases were offset by expected increases in operational spending and higher depreciation and property tax expenses resulting from additional capital investments.

  • The combined impacts of COVID-19 and temperatures that were lower than the third quarter of 2019 were largely offsetting. COVID-19 restrictions continued to increase volumetric (primarily residential) load and reduce demand-based (commercial and industrial) load.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995
Statements made in this news release for PNM Resources, Inc. ("PNMR"), Public Service Company of New Mexico ("PNM"), or Texas-New Mexico Power Company ("TNMP") (collectively, the "Company") that relate to future events or expectations, projections, estimates, intentions, goals, targets, and strategies are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Readers are cautioned that all forward-looking statements are based upon current expectations and estimates. PNMR, PNM, and TNMP assume no obligation to update this information. Because actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, PNMR, PNM, and TNMP caution readers not to place undue reliance on these statements. PNMR's, PNM's, and TNMP's business, financial condition, cash flow, and operating results are influenced by many factors, which are often beyond their control, that can cause actual results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Additionally, there are risks and uncertainties in connection with the proposed acquisition of us by AVANGRID which may adversely affect our business, future opportunities, employees and common stock, including without limitation, (i) the expected timing and likelihood of completion of the pending Merger, including the timing, receipt and terms and conditions of any required governmental and regulatory approvals of the pending Merger that could reduce anticipated benefits or cause the parties to abandon the transaction, (ii) the failure by AVANGRID to obtain the necessary financing arrangement set forth in commitment letter received in connection with the Merger, (iii) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement, (iv) the possibility that PNMR's shareholders may not approve the Merger Agreement, (v) the risk that the parties may not be able to satisfy the conditions to the proposed Merger in a timely manner or at all, (vi) risks related to disruption of management time from ongoing business operations due to the proposed Merger, and (vii) the risk that the proposed transaction and its announcement could have an adverse effect on the ability of PNMR to retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with its customers and suppliers, and on its operating results and businesses generally. For a discussion of risk factors and other important factors affecting forward-looking statements, please see the Company's Form 10-K, Form 10-Q filings and the information included in the Company's Forms 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which factors are specifically incorporated by reference herein.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
GAAP refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. Ongoing earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of net unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses on economic hedges, the net change in unrealized gains and losses on investment securities, pension expense related to previously disposed of gas distribution business, and certain non-recurring, infrequent, and other items that are not indicative of fundamental changes in the earnings capacity of the Company's operations. The Company uses ongoing earnings and ongoing earnings per diluted share (or ongoing diluted earnings per share) to evaluate the operations of the Company and to establish goals, including those used for certain aspects of incentive compensation, for management and employees. While the Company believes these financial measures are appropriate and useful for investors, they are not measures presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not intend for these measures, or any piece of these measures, to represent any financial measure as defined by GAAP. Furthermore, the Company's calculations of these measures as presented may or may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company uses ongoing earnings guidance to provide investors with management's expectations of ongoing financial performance over the period presented. While the Company believes ongoing earnings guidance is an appropriate measure, it is not a measure presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not intend for ongoing earnings guidance to represent an expectation of net earnings as defined by GAAP. Since the future differences between GAAP and ongoing earnings are frequently outside the control of the Company, management is generally not able to estimate the impact of the reconciling items between forecasted GAAP net earnings and ongoing earnings guidance, nor their probable impact on GAAP net earnings without unreasonable effort, therefore, management is generally not able to provide a corresponding GAAP equivalent for ongoing earnings guidance. Reconciliations between GAAP and ongoing earnings are contained in schedules 1-5.
