NEW YORK, May 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Macquarie Global Infrastructure Total Return Fund Inc. (NYSE:MGU) (the "Fund") announced that the Fund’s Board of Directors has unanimously approved the Fund’s election to be subject to the Maryland Control Share Acquisition Act ("MCSAA"), effective as of April 27, 2022. The objective of the MCSAA is to protect the interests of all shareholders of a Maryland corporation. It achieves this by limiting the voting power of a large investor, or group of investors acting in concert, with respect to newly acquired shares above various threshold levels that start at 10 percent. Those shares can be voted only if two-thirds of the shares held by the other shareholders agree to grant voting rights to these "control shares."

The MCSAA will only apply to "control shares" acquired after April 27, 2022, the date that the Fund elected to be subject to the MCSAA. The above description of the MCSAA is only a high-level summary and investors should refer to the actual provisions of the MCSAA for more information.

In addition, the Board of Directors declared on May 3, 2022, a regular distribution for the month ending April 30, 2022 of $0.13 per share, which is an increase from the prior distribution of $0.10 per share.

Based on the Fund’s net asset value ("NAV") per share of $29.20 and New York Stock Exchange closing market price of $24.46 on April 29, 2022, the $0.13 per share distribution is equal to an annualized distribution rate of 5.34% at NAV and 6.38% at market price.

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 2022, including the percentage of qualified dividend income, will be made by the Fund after Dec. 31, 2022.

This distribution will be payable on May 27, 2022, to shareholders of record on May 20, 2022, with an ex-dividend date of May 19, 2022.
