HAMILTON, BERMUDA--(Marketwired - Feb. 17, 2015) - Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE:BIP)(TSX:BIP.UN) announced today that it has amended the provisions of its limited partnership agreement that relate to the delivery of certain tax information to unitholders. As a result, unitholders that Brookfield Infrastructure determines do not ordinarily have U.S. federal tax filing requirements will no longer receive a Schedule K-1 and related information.

Unitholders may elect to continue to receive a Schedule K-1 and the related information by contacting Brookfield Infrastructure within 60 days of each financial year end, or March 1, 2015 in respect of the year ended December 31, 2014.

Its current business consists of the ownership and operation of premier utilities, transport and energy assets in North and South America, Australasia, and Europe. It also seeks acquisition opportunities in other infrastructure sectors with similar attributes. Brookfield Infrastructure's payout policy targets 5% to 9% annual growth in distributions.
