PNM Granted Additional Time to Gain Support for Rate Case Agreement

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The rate case schedule for PNM Resources' (NYSE: PNM) New Mexico utility, PNM, has been extended an additional two weeks after regulators agreed to give the utility more time to gain support for a stipulation with other parties.

Today, Commissioners granted the motion and set Feb. 3 as the new deadline for filing a stipulation. If a stipulation does not materialize, the case will proceed on a litigation path according to the new extended schedule.

The terms of a possible stipulation will be released when filed with the Commission. The joint motion is available on the PNM Resources Web site at http://www.pnmresources.com/investors/regulatory.cfm. The Commission's order will be posted when it is available.
