Macquarie Global Infrastructure Total Return Fund Inc. Increases Regular Quarterly Distribution

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Board of Directors of Macquarie Global Infrastructure Total Return Fund Inc. (NYS: MGU) (the "Fund") declared on December 6, 2012, a regular distribution for the quarter ending November 30, 2012 of $0.32 per share, representing a $0.04 per share or 14% increase from the previous quarter.

"We are pleased to increase the distribution again this quarter," said Mr. Jonathan Ong, Co-Portfolio Manager of the Fund. "The companies in the portfolio continue to perform largely in line with expectations, and we are pleased to be able to continue the growth in the distribution to our shareholders."


Based on the Fund's net asset value ("NAV") of $21.38 and New York Stock Exchange closing market price of $18.85 on November 30, 2012, the $0.32 per share distribution is equal to an annualized distribution rate of 6.0% at NAV and 6.8% 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 December 31, 2012 to shareholders of record on December 21, 2012, with an ex-dividend date of December 19, 2012.
