Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), today announced that it will issue
17.04 million new shares of its common stock in connection with the payment of
the Company’s previously announced special dividend of $700 million, or

trust, or REIT.

as of the close of business on October 22, 2012. Stockholders who elected to
receive payment of the Special Dividend in cash will receive approximately
$1.14 per share of their payment, or 28%, in cash and approximately $2.92 per
share, or 72%, in shares of the Company’s common stock. All other stockholders
will receive 100% of their payment in shares of the Company’s common stock.
All stockholders will also receive cash in lieu of fractional shares, if any.
The number of shares to be issued was determined based upon the average
closing price on the three trading days following November 14, 2012, or $32.87
