Macquarie Infrastructure Company LLC Reports on Recovery from Hurricane Sandy
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC) operating companies
International-Matex Tank Terminals ("IMTT") and Atlantic Aviation have
largely recovered from the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Both businesses
report a substantial return to normal operations after the storm.
IMTT reports that its bulk liquid storage facility at Bayonne, NJ is
receiving and delivering substantially all products by all modes of
transport. While permanent power has been restored to most of the
facility, backup systems are in place and working in those parts of the
facility still without permanent power.
Atlantic Aviation's fixed base operations at airports in Teterboro, NJ,
Farmingdale, L.I., and Bridgeport, CT, as well as its heliport on East
34th Street in New York City were damaged or disrupted by the hurricane.
Each facility has been restored and normal operations have resumed.
"The staff and management of our businesses pulled together to restore
these operations with minimal impact on the financial performance of
IMTT and Atlantic Aviation in 2012," said James Hooke, Chief Executive
Officer of MIC. "We're grateful to them and to their families for their
exceptional effort during this time."
MIC expects its financial results for the fourth quarter to reflect
approximately $2.3 million in payments of insurance deductibles and less
than $5 million in total impact from the storm.
