  Results of Cash Tender Offer

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- November 20, 2012

Macquarie Global Infrastructure Total Return Fund Inc. (NYSE: MGU) (the
“Fund”) announced today the final results of its cash tender offer for up to
3,463,415 (representing approximately 20%) of its issued and outstanding
shares of common stock (the “Offer”). The Offer expired on November 16, 2012,
at 12:00 midnight, New York City time.

Based on information provided by The Colbent Corporation, the depository for
the tender offer, approximately 8,199,887 shares of common stock or
approximately 47.4% of the Fund’s outstanding shares of common stock were
properly tendered, and the Fund has accepted 3,463,415 shares for cash payment
at a price equal to $19.49 per share, which represents 95% of the Fund’s net
asset value per share (“NAV”) as of the close of regular trading session of
the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on November 19, 2012. Since the total
number of shares tendered exceeds the number of shares the Fund offered to
purchase, on a pro-rated basis, 42.2% of the shares of common stock tendered
by each tendering shareholder were accepted for payment. Following the
purchase of the properly tendered shares, the Fund will have approximately
13,853,659 outstanding shares.

The Fund previously announced that it would commence a subsequent conditional
offer for up to 10% of the then-outstanding shares of common stock at a price
equal to 92% of the net asset value per share, determined as of the business
day immediately following the day the subsequent conditional tender offer
expires, if: (1) more than 25% of the Fund’s outstanding shares of common
stock are validly tendered and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer
and (2) the Fund’s shares have traded at a market price that represents an
average daily discount from net asset value of more than 8% during the
20-business day period beginning January 15, 2013 (“measuring period”). The
Fund would commence a subsequent tender offer no later than fifteen business
days following the conclusion of the measuring period. The first condition has
been met because more than 25% of the Fund’s outstanding shares of common
stock were validly tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Offer. The
subsequent conditional offer will occur if the second condition is met, which
will be announced after the end of the measuring period.
