Macquarie Infrastructure Company Announces Result Of Arbitration

Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC) announced that the arbitration panel has directed International-Matex Tank Terminals (“IMTT”) to pay a dividend in the amount of $221,157,000 ($110,578,500 to each of MIC and its co-investor) as the total dividend through December 31, 2011. The decision is the culmination of an arbitration proceeding MIC initiated in April, 2011 involving the Company and its co-investor in its bulk liquid storage terminal business.

MIC expects to increase its quarterly cash dividend upon IMTT’s compliance with the order. MIC has previously stated that the dividend would be increased from the current $0.20 per share, per quarter, to at least $0.375 per share, per quarter.

The amount and timing of the dividend increase remains subject to the approval of the MIC board. MIC expects to provide further information on its dividend level and dividend policy when it releases its financial results for the first quarter of 2012 on May 2, 2012.
