filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York,
and docketed under 18-cv-03744, is on behalf of a class consisting of
investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Macquarie’s securities
between February 22, 2016, and February 21, 2018, both dates inclusive
(the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’
violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under
Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the
“Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, against the
Company and certain of its top officials.

Macquarie Infrastructure Corporation owns, operates, and invests in a
portfolio of infrastructure businesses. The Company’s businesses consist
of bulk liquid terminals, airport services, gas processing and
distribution, and a portfolio of contracted power and energy
investments. Macquarie’s International-Matex Tank Terminals (“IMTT”)
business provides bulk liquid storage and handling services at 12 marine
terminals in the United States and Canada, is Macquarie’s most important
business segment.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s
business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(i) IMTT’s performance and utilization were at risk of significant
decline due to ongoing industrywide changes in the market for heavy
residual oils, and in particular, declining demand and pricing for No. 6
fuel oil; (ii) IMTT relied significantly on demand for storage of heavy
residual fuel oils, including No. 6 fuel oil; (iii) Macquarie needed to
undertake significant capital expenditures to repurpose IMTT storage
tanks to accommodate alternative products; and (iv) as a result of the
foregoing, Macquarie’s shares traded at artificially inflated prices
during the Class Period, and class members suffered significant losses
and damages.

On February 21, 2018, after the market closed, Macquarie surprised the
market by announcing disappointing fourth-quarter earnings of $0.43 per
share, well short of analysts’ estimate of $0.51 per share, and that the
Company would be slashing its dividend by 31%. Macquarie blamed its poor
performance on the declining use of heavy residual oil products,
declining demand and prices for No. 6 fuel oil.

On this news, Macquarie’s share price fell $26.21, or 41.19%, to close
at $37.41 on February 22, 2018.
