09/09/2011| 07:55am US/Eastern
The Board of Directors of Macquarie Global Infrastructure Total Return
Fund Inc. (NYSE:MGU) (the "Fund") approved on September 6, 2011, a
regular quarterly distribution for the period ending September 30, 2011
of $0.18 per share.
"The infrastructure companies in the portfolio have operationally
performed largely in line with our expectations," said Mr. Maple-Brown,
Portfolio Manager of the Fund. "The Fund returned -10.0% over the last
fiscal quarter, slightly ahead of the -10.2% return for global
equities*. We expect that infrastructure earnings will continue to be
more resilient than the broader equity market, in keeping with the
essential service nature of infrastructure and its ability to withstand
weak economic conditions."
Based on the Fund's net asset value ("NAV") of $18.50 and New York Stock
Exchange closing market price of $16.34 on August 25, 2011, the $0.18
per share distribution is equal to an annualized distribution rate of
3.89% at NAV and 4.40% at market price, respectively.
A portion of the distributions may be treated as paid from sources other
than net income, including, but not limited to, short-term capital gain,
long-term capital gain and return of capital. The final determination of
the source of all distributions in 2011, including the percentage of
qualified dividend income, will be made by the Fund after December 31,
This distribution will be payable on September 30, 2011 to shareholders
of record on September 22, 2011, with an ex-dividend date of September
