Comments from Management:

Bing Chen, President and CEO of Atlas, commented, «Our strong second quarter performance was at the high end of our expected range, enabling us to raise financial guidance for 2021. Increasing our financial guidance reflects both our strong first half performance and the confidence we have in delivering continued high-performance over the long-term. With Seaspan’s industry record of newbuilds and significant forward fixing of our operating fleet, we’re pleased to provide one-time long-term financial guidance to assist investors understanding of how our business model benefits from the current market and the cumulative impact on our financial performance. This disclosure also demonstrates our confidence to execute consistently and achieve quality growth through all market cycles.»

«Our liner customers continued to value Seaspan’s long-term partnership through both forward-fixing of operating fleet charters and executing on strategic orders for newbuild vessels. APR reported solid Q2 performance and is focused on expanding upon the opportunities beyond the two current successful deployments in Mexicali and California.» 

«Seaspan has significantly transformed its operational and financial profile over the past four years. Today, we have a highly differentiated model in the market with unmatched business scale, operational excellence, customer flexibility, fleet versatility, financial strength, and creative solutions. Our resilient and differentiated business model has generated $16.2 billion of high-quality long-term gross contracted cash flows. We have secured 100% of our gross contracted cash flows for 2021. This is a testament to our consistent long-term approach and the ability to drive quality growth by providing value-added creative solutions to our customers through all business and market cycles.»

Graham Talbot, CFO of Atlas, commented, «Our finance teams have executed with equally high performance throughout 2021, which culminated in the achievement of several financial milestones over the past several months. In relatively short time, we have simplified our capital structure, created greater financial flexibility, secured a lower cost of capital, funded the majority of our newbuild program, and improved liquidity.»

«With the support of our strategic investor Fairfax, we have restructured their holdings and anticipate further developments to unlock value and broaden our growing base of global investors. We are now rated by three top credit agencies and expect further traction on our path to an investment grade company credit rating. To build upon our investor engagement, Atlas provided this quarter detailed disclosure of fleet, operational and growth information along with long-term financial goals. Our enhanced reporting is aligned with our commitment to transparency and highlights our differentiated and resilient business model.»

The guidance is based on the 55 newbuild vessels that we have contracted to acquire with no further vessel acquisitions assumed. The Company believes these assumptions to be reasonable at this time, but the forward-looking statements are subject to risk and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control, which may cause actual results to differ materially from those implied or expressed by the forward-looking statements. The risk that the assumptions on which the 2022, 2023, and 2024 outlook and guidance are based prove incorrect may increase the later the period to which the outlook relates, and the extended period of this outlook may increase the chance actual results vary materially from such expectations.

The change in contingent consideration asset relates to the mark to market impact of contingent consideration related to the acquisition of APR. Pursuant to the acquisition agreement, the sellers of APR agreed to compensate the Company for losses on cash repatriation from a foreign jurisdiction related to cash generated from specified contracts less relevant costs (the «Peso Contingent Asset Arrangement»). The seller’s indemnification obligations will end on April 30, 2022, or earlier if certain conditions are met. In February 2021, the sellers of APR further agreed to compensate the Company, subject to definitive documentation, for losses on sale or disposal of certain fixed asset and inventory items. The definitive documentation was executed on April 30, 2021. The value of compensation receivable from the sellers is accounted for as a contingent consideration asset.

(2)

Loss on foreign currency repatriation relates to losses recognized on cash repatriation from a foreign jurisdiction, where compensation is receivable through the Peso Contingent Asset Arrangement. Compensation is made by the sellers in cash or return of previously issued equity, which is offset against the contingent consideration asset when received and therefore, is not reflected in the income statement.

(3)

Elimination and Other includes amounts relating to preferred shares, change in contingent consideration asset, elimination of intercompany transactions and unallocated amounts.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes various financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission («SEC»). These non-GAAP financial measures, which include FFO, FFO Per Share, Diluted («FFO Per Share»), Adjusted Earnings, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Diluted («Adjusted EPS»), Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt and Total Borrowings, are intended to provide additional information and are not prepared in accordance with, and should not be considered substitutes for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles («GAAP»). Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of the non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool.

For a reconciliation of each non-GAAP measure to its most comparable GAAP measure, please see the «Non-GAAP Reconciliations» tables in this press release. A reconciliation of projected Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income as shown under «Guidance» is not provided herein because the projected comparable GAAP measure for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 cannot be prepared without unreasonable burden and with sufficient certainty. The components of the projected GAAP measure that cannot be so prepared include, but are not limited to, income tax expense, gains/losses on sale, loss on derivative instruments, impairment, change in contingent consideration asset and loss on foreign currency repatriation.

FFO and FFO Per Share represent net earnings adjusted for depreciation and amortization, gains/losses on sale, unrealized change in fair value of derivative instruments, loss on foreign currency repatriation, change in contingent consideration asset, preferred share dividends accumulated, impairment, loss on debt extinguishment and certain other items that management believes are not representative of its operating performance. FFO and FFO Per Share are useful performance measures because they exclude those items that management believes are not representative of its performance.

FFO and FFO Per Share are not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings, earnings per share or any other indicator of the Company’s performance required to be reported by GAAP. In addition, this measure may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted EPS represents net earnings adjusted for preferred share dividends accumulated, impairment, loss on debt extinguishment and other items that management believes are not representative of its ongoing performance.

Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted EPS are not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings, net earnings per share or any other indicator of the Company’s performance required to be reported by GAAP. In addition, this measure may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies and the closest measure is net earnings. Management believes that these metrics are helpful in providing investors with information to assess the on-going operations of the business.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net earnings before interest expense and income, tax expense, depreciation and amortization, impairments, write-down and gains/losses on sale, gains/losses on derivative instruments, loss on foreign currency repatriation, change in contingent consideration asset, loss on debt extinguishment, other expenses and certain other items that management believes are not representative of its operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing the Company’s results from operations. Management believes that this measure is useful in assessing performance and highlighting trends on an overall basis. Management also believes that this performance measure can be useful in comparing its results with those of other companies, even though other companies may not calculate this measure in the same way. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is net earnings. Adjusted EBITDA is not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings or any other indicator of the Company’s performance required to be reported by GAAP.

The Company is unable to provide reconciliations of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA and its components to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because the necessary components that impact those GAAP financial measures cannot be reliably predicted. These components include, but are not limited to, income tax expense, gains/losses on sale, loss on derivative instruments, impairment, change in contingent consideration asset and loss on foreign currency repatriation. Such components may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future financial results.

Net Debt represents total borrowings before debt discount and fair value adjustments, net of cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash. Total Borrowings represents long-term debt and other financing arrangements, excluding deferred financing fees.

Operating Net Debt represents total borrowings before debt discount and fair value adjustments, net of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and vessels under construction.

Net Debt and Total Borrowings provide useful information to investors in assessing the Company’s leverage. Management believes this measure is useful in assessing the Company’s ability to settle contracted debt payments. Management also believes that this leverage measurement can be useful in comparing its position with those of other companies, even though other companies may not calculate this measure in the same way. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Net Debt and Total Borrowings is the total of long-term debt and other financing arrangements. Net Debt and Total Borrowings are not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to long-term debt and other financing arrangements or any other indicator of the Company’s financial position required to be reported by GAAP.

Forward-looking statements in this release are estimates and assumptions reflecting the judgment of senior management and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond Atlas’ control. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The risk that the assumptions on which the 2022 to 2024 outlook and guidance are based prove incorrect may increase the later the period to which the outlook relates, and the extended period of this outlook may increase the chance actual results vary materially from such expectations. Accordingly, all forward-looking statements should be considered in light of various important factors listed above and including, but not limited to, those set forth in «Item 3. Key Information—D.
