Macquarie Infrastructure Company LLC (MIC) recently offered a glimpse of its soon-to-be-released second quarter 2013 results, when it divulged the quantum of performance fees due to be received by its management entity. The company is scheduled to report its quarterly results after the market closes on Jul 31.

Macquarie Infrastructure revealed that Macquarie Infrastructure Management (USA) Inc., its management company, has earned a performance fee of $24.4 for the quarter.
