The Board of Directors of Macquarie Global Infrastructure Total Return Fund Inc. (NYSE:MGU) (the “Fund”) declared on March 8, 2012, a regular quarterly distribution for the period ending March 31, 2012 of $0.24 per share. This represents an increase of 20% or $0.04/share over the previous distribution and 50% or $0.08/share over the distribution for the third quarter of 2010.

“We are delighted to be able to increase the distribution. We reduced the distribution back in 2008 when it was prudent to do so. We have been able to increase the distribution several times since then. This further increase is driven by the ongoing improved market conditions and lower borrowing costs,” said Mr. Andrew Maple-Brown, Portfolio Manager of the Fund. “It is prudent to pass that benefit through to our shareholders.”

The increased distribution follows a very strong quarter for the Fund, in which it returned 13.4%, almost 10% ahead of its reference benchmark and more than 3% ahead of global equities. The infrastructure companies in the portfolio have generally performed largely in line with our expectations and this solid performance has been reflected in their share prices.

Based on the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”) of $21.23 and New York Stock Exchange closing market price of $18.73 on February 29, 2012, the $0.24 per share distribution is equal to an annualized distribution rate of 4.52% at NAV and 5.13% 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 2012, including the percentage of qualified dividend income, will be made by the Fund after December 31, 2012.

This distribution will be payable on March 30, 2012 to shareholders of record on March 23, 2012, with an ex-dividend date of March 21, 2012.
