NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC) announced that its Atlantic Aviation subsidiary has concluded sales of fixed base operations at Hayward Executive Airport in Hayward, California and Burlington International Airport in Burlington, Vermont.

“These transactions are consistent with Atlantic’s previously disclosed strategy of selling FBOs when an attractive valuation can be achieved and proceeds effectively redeployed”

“These transactions are consistent with Atlantic’s previously disclosed strategy of selling FBOs when an attractive valuation can be achieved and proceeds effectively redeployed,” said James Hooke, Chief Executive Officer of MIC.

“Atlantic concluded that its operations at each of Hayward and Burlington were sub-scale relative to their markets. Selling the FBOs at these airports provides Atlantic with an opportunity to pursue expansion into regions they believe have stronger growth prospects,” added Hooke.

Atlantic is negotiating the acquisition of additional U.S.-based FBOs. Proceeds from the sales of the Hayward and Burlington operations will be retained to fund a portion of these acquisitions, should negotiations result in a purchase agreement.

Following the announcement of the sales, MIC reaffirmed its full-year guidance for Atlantic of EBITDA (earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization) of between $125 and $130 million.

Atlantic operates the largest network of fixed base operations in the U.S. and opened its newest facility at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City on June 21st.
