REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Shareholder and Board of Directors of
Seaspan Corporation:

Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Seaspan Corporation (the Company) as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, shareholder’s equity, and cash flows for each of the years in the three‑year period ended December 31, 2021, and the related notes (collectively, the consolidated financial statements). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the three‑year period ended December 31, 2021, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Changes in Accounting Principles

As discussed in Note 2(q) to the consolidated financial statements, effective January 1, 2020, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2017-04, “Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment”, which eliminates the need to determine the fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit to measure the implied goodwill impairment. Our opinion is not modified with respect to this matter.

Basis for Opinion

These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Critical Audit Matter

The critical audit matter communicated below is a matter arising from the current period audit of the consolidated financial statements that was communicated or required to be communicated to the Board and that: (1) relates to accounts or disclosures that are material to the consolidated financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgment. The communication of a critical audit matter does not alter in any way our opinion on the consolidated financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matter below, providing a separate opinion on the critical audit matter or on the accounts or disclosures to which it relates.

Assessment of indicators of impairment for vessels

As discussed in Note 2(e) to the consolidated financial statements, property, plant and equipment that are held for use are evaluated for impairment when events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amounts may not be recoverable from future undiscounted cash flows. Examples of such events or changes in circumstances for vessels (“impairment indicators”) include, among others, a significant adverse change in the extent or manner in which the asset is being used or in its physical condition; a significant adverse change in legal factors or in the business climate that could affect the asset’s value, including an adverse action or assessment by a foreign government that impacts the use of the asset; or a current-period operating or cash flow loss combined with a history of operating or cash flow losses; or a projection or forecast that demonstrates continuing losses associated with the asset’s use. The determination of whether impairment indicators exist requires significant judgment in evaluating underlying significant assumptions including charter rates, utilization rates, operating costs and current vessel market values. The Company did not identify any indicators of impairment related to the vessels for the year ended December 31, 2021. As discussed in Note 5 and Note 6, the total carrying value of the Company’s vessels, including right of use vessels, was $7,297.1 million as of December 31, 2021.

We identified the assessment of indicators of impairment for vessels as a critical audit matter. A higher degree of subjective auditor judgment was required to assess the Company’s determination of whether an indicator of impairment existed, based on the Company’s evaluation of the significant assumptions. Changes in these significant assumptions could have changed the Company’s conclusion that no indicators of impairment were identified.

The following are the primary procedures we performed to address this critical audit matter. We evaluated the design and tested the operating effectiveness of certain internal controls over the Company’s impairment indicator assessment process. This included controls related to the identification and evaluation of indicators of impairment and underlying significant assumptions. We evaluated significant
1


assumptions used in the Company’s evaluation by comparing current charter rates to existing customer contracts and estimates of future charter rates to third-party industry publications for vessels with similar characteristics. We evaluated the Company’s anticipated future utilization rates and operating costs assumptions by comparing to the Company’s historical utilization rates and operating costs. For utilization rates, we also compared anticipated supply and demand conditions that would impact utilization to third party industry publications. We evaluated the Company’s assessment of current market values of vessels by comparing to recent vessel purchases and third-party industry publications

SEASPAN CORPORATION
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Tabular amounts in millions of United States dollars, except per share amount and number of shares)

Years Ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019
1.General:
Seaspan Corporation (“Seaspan” or the “Company”) was incorporated on May 3, 2005 in the Marshall Islands and owns and operates containerships pursuant to primarily long-term, fixed-rate time charters to major container liner companies.
In February 2020, Seaspan completed a holding company reorganization (the “Reorganization”) whereby Seaspan became a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Corp. ("Atlas"). Pursuant to the Reorganization, common and preferred shareholders of Seaspan became common and preferred shareholders of Atlas, as applicable, on a one-for-one basis, maintaining the same number of shares and ownership percentage held in Seaspan immediately prior to the Reorganization. The Company’s common shares and preferred shares were cancelled and re-issued to Atlas as common shares. Atlas assumed all of Seaspan’s share purchase warrants and equity plans and will perform all relevant obligations.

2.Significant accounting policies:
(a)Basis of presentation:
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the following accounting policies have been consistently applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.
(b)Principles of consolidation:
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Seaspan Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation.
The Company also consolidates any variable interest entities (“VIEs”) of which it is the primary beneficiary. The primary beneficiary is the enterprise that has both the power to make decisions that most significantly affect the economic performance of the VIE and has the right to receive benefits or the obligation to absorb losses that in either case could potentially be significant to the VIE. The impact of the consolidation of these VIEs is described in note 10.
The Company accounts for its investment in companies in which it has significant influence by the equity method. The Company’s proportionate share of earnings is included in earnings and added to or deducted from the cost of the investment.
(c)Foreign currency translation:
The functional and reporting currency of the Company is the United States dollar. Transactions involving other currencies are converted into United States dollars using the exchange rates in effect at the time of the transactions. At the balance sheet date, monetary assets and liabilities that are denominated in currencies other than the United States dollar are translated into United States dollars using exchange rates at that date. Exchange gains and losses are included in net earnings.
(d)Cash equivalents:
Cash equivalents include highly liquid securities with terms to maturity of three months or less when acquired.
(e)Vessels:
Except as described below, vessels are recorded at their cost, which consists of the purchase price, acquisition and delivery costs, less accumulated depreciation.

2.Significant accounting policies (continued):
(e)     Vessels (continued):
Vessels purchased from the Company’s predecessor upon completion of the Company’s initial public offering in 2005 were initially recorded at the predecessor’s carrying value.
Vessels under construction include deposits, installment payments, interest, financing costs, transaction fees, construction design, supervision costs, and other pre-delivery costs incurred during the construction period.
Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of each vessel, which is 30 years from the date of completion. The Company calculates depreciation based on the estimated remaining useful life and the expected salvage value of the vessel.
Vessels that are held for use are evaluated for impairment when events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amounts may not be recoverable from future undiscounted cash flows. Such evaluations include the comparison of current and anticipated operating cash flows, assessment of future operations and other relevant factors. If the carrying amount of the vessel exceeds the estimated net undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated over the vessel’s remaining useful life, the carrying amount of the vessel is reduced to its estimated fair value.
(f)Dry-dock activities:
Classification rules require that vessels be dry-docked for inspection including planned major maintenance and overhaul activities for ongoing certification. The Company generally dry-docks its vessels once every five years. Dry-docking activities include the inspection, refurbishment and replacement of steel, engine components, electrical, pipes and valves, and other parts of the vessel. The Company uses the deferral method of accounting for dry-dock activities whereby capital costs incurred are deferred and amortized on a straight-line basis over the period until the next scheduled dry-dock activity.
(g)Goodwill:
Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price of an acquired enterprise over the fair value assigned to assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. Goodwill is not amortized, but reviewed for impairment annually or more frequently if impairment indicators arise. When goodwill is reviewed for impairment, the Company may elect to assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, including goodwill. Alternatively, the Company may bypass this step and use a fair value approach to identify potential goodwill impairment and, when necessary, measure the amount of impairment. The Company uses a discounted cash flow model to determine the fair value of reporting units, unless there is a readily determinable fair market value.
(h)Deferred financing fees:
Deferred financing fees represent the unamortized costs incurred on issuance of the Company’s credit facilities and other financing arrangements and are presented as a direct deduction from the related debt liability when available. Amortization of deferred financing fees on credit facilities is provided on the effective interest rate method over the term of the facility based on amounts available under the facilities. Amortization of deferred financing fees on other financing arrangements is provided on the effective interest rate method over the term of the underlying obligation. Amortization of deferred financing fees is recorded as interest expense.
(i)Revenue:
The Company derives its revenue primarily from the charter of its vessels. Each charter agreement is evaluated and classified as an operating lease or financing lease based on the lease term, fair value associated with the lease and any purchase options or obligations. The assessment is done at lease commencement and reassessed only when a modification occurs that is not considered a separate contract.
Charters classified as operating leases include a lease component associated with the use of the vessel and a non-lease component related to vessel management. Total consideration in the lease agreement is allocated between the lease and non-lease components based on their relative standalone selling prices. For arrangements where the timing and pattern of transfer to the lessee is consistent between the lease and non-lease components and the lease component, if accounted for separately, would be classified as an operating lease, the Company has elected to treat the lease and non-lease components as a single lease component. Revenue is recognized each day the vessels are on-hire, managed and performance obligations are satisfied.

2. Significant accounting policies (continued):
(j)      Revenue (continued):
For charters that are classified as direct financing leases and sales-type leases, the present value of minimum lease payments and any unguaranteed residual value are recognized as net investment in lease. The discount rate used in determining the present values is the interest rate implicit in the lease. The lower of the fair value of the vessel based on information available at lease commencement date and the present value of the minimum lease payments computed using the interest rate implicit specific to each lease, represents the price, from which the carrying value of the vessel and any initial direct costs are deducted in order to determine the selling profit or loss.
For charters that are classified as direct financing leases, the unearned lease interest income including any selling profit and initial direct costs are deferred and amortized to income over the period of the lease so as to produce a constant periodic rate of return on the net investment in lease. Any selling loss is recognized at lease commencement date.
For charters that are classified as sales-type leases, any selling profit or loss is recognized at lease commencement date. Initial direct costs are expensed at lease commencement date if the fair value of the vessel is different from its carrying amount. If the fair value of the vessel is equal to its carrying amount, initial direct costs should be deferred and amortized to income over the term of the lease.
(j)Leases:
The Company is the lessee in certain of its vessel sale-leaseback transactions. Leases classified as operating leases are recorded as lease liabilities based on the present value of minimum lease payments over the lease term, discounted using the lessor’s rate implicit in the lease for each individual lease arrangement or the Company’s incremental borrowing rate, if the lessor’s implicit rate is not readily determinable. The lease term includes all periods covered by renewal and termination options where the Company is reasonably certain to exercise the renewal options or not to exercise the termination options. Corresponding right-of-use assets are recognized consisting of the lease liabilities, initial direct costs and any lease incentive payments.
Lease liabilities are drawn down as lease payments are made and right-of-use assets are depreciated over the term of the lease. Operating lease expenses are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, consisting of interest accrued on the lease liability and depreciation of the right-of-use asset, adjusted for changes in index-based variable lease payments in the period of change.
Lease payments on short-term operating leases with lease terms of twelve months or less are expensed as incurred.
Transactions are determined to be sale-leaseback transactions when control of the vessel is transferred. For sale-leaseback transactions, where the Company is the seller-lessee, any gains or losses on sale are recognized upon transfer.
(k)Derivative financial instruments:
From time to time, the Company utilizes derivative financial instruments. All of the Company’s derivatives are measured at their fair value at the end of each period. Derivatives that mature within one year are classified as current. For derivatives not designated as accounting hedges, changes in their fair value are recorded in earnings.
The Company’s hedging policies permit the use of various derivative financial instruments to manage interest rate risk.
The Company had previously designated certain of its interest rate swaps as accounting hedges and applied hedge accounting to those instruments. By September 30, 2008, the Company de-designated all of the interest rate swaps it had accounted for as hedges to that date. Subsequent to their de-designation dates, changes in their fair value are recorded in earnings.
The Company evaluates whether the occurrence of any of the previously hedged interest payments are considered to be remote. When the previously hedged interest payments are not considered remote of occurring, unrealized gains or losses in accumulated other comprehensive income associated with the previously designated interest rate swaps are recognized in earnings when and where the interest payments are recognized. If such interest payments are identified as being remote, the accumulated other comprehensive income balance pertaining to these amounts is reversed through earnings immediately.

2. Significant accounting policies (continued):
(m)      Fair value measurement:
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e. the “exit price”) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The hierarchy is broken down into three levels based on the observability of inputs as follows:
Level 1 — Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access. Valuation adjustments and block discounts are not applied to Level 1 instruments. Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these products does not entail a significant degree of judgment.
Level 2 — Valuations based on one or more quoted prices in markets that are not active or for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly.
Level 3 — Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.
(n)     Share-based compensation:
The Company has granted restricted shares, phantom share units, restricted stock units and stock options to certain of its officers, members of management and directors as compensation. Upon completion of the Reorganization, Atlas assumed all of Seaspan’s share purchase warrants and equity plans and has and will perform all relevant obligations. Compensation cost is measured at the grant date fair values as follows:
Restricted shares, phantom share units and restricted stock units are measured based on the quoted market price of the common shares on the date of the grant.
Stock options exercisable into Atlas common shares are measured at fair value using the Black-Scholes model.
The fair value of each grant is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period. The Company accounts for forfeitures in share-based compensation expense as they occur.
(o) Use of estimates:
The preparation of consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the:
reported amounts of assets and liabilities,
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the balance sheet dates and
reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting fiscal periods.
Areas where accounting judgments and estimates are significant to the Company and where actual results could differ from those estimates, include the:
assessment of going concern;
assessment of vessel useful lives;
expected vessel salvage values;
recoverability of the carrying value of vessels which are subject to future market events;
carrying value of goodwill; and
fair value of interest rate swaps, other derivative financial instruments.
(p)     Comparative information:
Certain information has been reclassified to conform to the financial statement presentation adopted for the current year.
(q)Recently adopted and future accounting pronouncements:
Measurement of credit loss
Effective January 1, 2020, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-13, “Measurement of Credit Loss on Financial Instruments”. ASU 2016-13 replaces the current incurred loss impairment methodology with the expected credit loss impairment model (“CECL”), which requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to estimate expected credit losses over the life of the instrument instead of only when losses are incurred. This standard applies to financial assets measured at amortized cost basis and investments in leases recognized by the lessor. Upon adoption, a cumulative effect adjustment of $2,293,000 was made to deficit as part of the modified retrospective transition approach.

2. Significant accounting policies (continued):
(q)    Recent accounting pronouncements:
Simplifying test for goodwill impairment
Effective January 1, 2020, the Company adopted ASU 2017-04, “Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment”. ASU 2017-04 eliminates the need to determine the fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit to measure the implied goodwill impairment. The goodwill impairment will now be the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill. The adoption of ASU 2017-04 did not have a material impact on the Company.
Discontinuation of LIBOR
The Company adopted ASU 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848)”, prospectively to contract modifications. The guidance provides optional relief for the discontinuation of LIBOR resulting from rate reform. Contract terms that are modified due to the replacement of a reference rate are not required to be remeasured or reassessed under FASB’s relevant U.S. GAAP Topic. The election is available by Topic. The Company has elected to apply the optional relief for contracts under ASC 470, “Debt”, ASC 840 and 842, “Leases”, and ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging”. There was no impact to the Company's financial statements upon initial adoption. The LIBOR replacement modifications for Debt contracts will be accounted for by prospectively adjusting the effective interest rate in the agreements. Existing lease and derivative contracts will require no reassessments. Transition activities are focused on the conversion of existing LIBOR based contracts to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate.
Debt with conversion and other options
Effective January 1, 2022, the Company adopted ASU 2020-06, “Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20)”, using the modified retrospective method, whereby the accounting for convertible debt instruments is simplified by reducing the number of accounting models and circumstances when embedded conversion features are separately recognized. The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material impact to the Company.
3.Related party transactions:
(a) The income or expenses with related parties relate to amounts paid to or received from individuals or entities that are associated with the Company or with the Company’s directors or officers and these transactions are governed by pre-arranged contracts.
(b) On each of February 14, 2018 and January 15, 2019, the Company issued to Fairfax $250,000,000 aggregate principal of 5.50% senior notes due on February 14, 2025 (“2025 Fairfax Notes”) and January 15, 2026 (“2026 Fairfax Notes”), respectively, and a tranche of warrants to purchase 38,461,539 common shares of Seaspan at an exercise price of $6.50 per share, on each date. On February 28, 2020, Seaspan issued to Fairfax, in a private placement, $100,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 5.50% senior notes due on March 1, 2027 (the “2027 Fairfax Notes” and together with the 2025 Fairfax Notes and the 2026 Fairfax Notes, the “Fairfax Notes”) (note 8(e)).
In June 2021, Atlas and Seaspan exchanged and amended the Fairfax Notes. Pursuant to this transaction, Atlas exchanged $200,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Fairfax Notes and all $100,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2027 Fairfax Notes for (i) 12,000,000 Series J 7.00% Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Shares of Atlas (the “Series J Preferred Shares”), representing total liquidation value of $300,000,000, and (ii) 1,000,000 five year warrants to purchase an equal number of Atlas common shares at an exercise price of $13.71 per share (the “Fairfax Exchange”) (note 8(e)). Subsequent to the Fairfax Exchange, Seaspan paid $300,000,000 to Atlas to settle the exchanged 2026 Fairfax Notes and 2027 Fairfax Notes and the notes were cancelled.
In connection with the Fairfax Exchange, the Fairfax Holders also agreed to amend the terms of the $300,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Fairfax Notes that remained outstanding following the Fairfax Exchange (the “Amendment”), which included all $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Fairfax Notes and $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Fairfax Notes. The Amendment, among other things, eliminated the Fairfax Holders’ mandatory redemption and put rights and released and discharged all outstanding guarantees and liens on collateral thereunder. The Fairfax Holders also agreed to terminate Seaspan’s Amended and Restated Pledge and Collateral Agent Agreement and to release and discharge all liens on collateral thereof (note 8(e)). During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company redeemed for cash the remaining 2025 Fairfax Notes and 2026 Fairfax Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
For the year ended December 31, 2021, interest expense related to the Fairfax Notes, excluding amortization of the debt discount, was $19,204,000 (2020 - $32,114,000; 2019 - $26,927,000). For the year ended December 31, 2021, amortization of debt discount was $14,188,000 (2020 - $19,963,000; 2019 - $17,347,000).

Atlas grants restricted shares, restricted stock units and stock options to the Company’s employees under the Atlas Corp. Stock Incentive Plan (the “Atlas Plan”) (note 12). The value of the awards granted to the Company’s employees is considered a capital contribution from Atlas. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company recognized capital contribution in respect of such grants of $7,340,000 (2020 - $2,940,000).
The Company routinely makes payments for expenses on behalf of Atlas. As of December 31, 2021, amounts due from Atlas are non-interest bearing, unsecured and have no fixed repayment terms.

In February 2020, the bareboat charters for the six vessels acquired in November 2019 were modified to extend the terms of the leases by six years, with similar purchase options. As a result of the modification, it was determined that the customer is no longer reasonably certain to exercise the purchase options and these leases were reclassified as operating leases.

In February 2021, the Company commenced a fixed rate bareboat charter with a term of 18 years on a recently acquired 12,000 TEU vessel, which has been classified as a sales-type lease. No gain or loss was recognized on commencement date.

In May 2021, the Company amended and restated one revolving credit facility which increased the aggregate commitments by $100,000,000 and extended the maturity by two years.
Revolving credit facilities and Term loan credit facilities balances as at December 31, 2020 have been reclassified to conform to the financial statement presentation adopted for the current year.
As at December 31, 2021, the Company has no drawn revolving credit facilities. As at December 31, 2020 , the one month and three month average LIBOR on the Company’s revolving credit facilities was 0.0%, and 0.2%, respectively and the margins ranged between 0.0% and 2.3%. The weighted average rate of interest, including the margin, for the Company’s revolving credit facilities was 1.1% at December 31, 2021 (December 31, 2020 – 1.4%). Interest payments are made monthly, quarterly or semi-annually.

The Company is subject to commitment fees ranging between 0.5% and 0.6% (December 31, 2020 – 0.2% and 0.6%) calculated on the undrawn amounts under the various facilities.

One of the term loan credit facilities has a revolving loan component which has been included in the revolving facilities.
In February 2020 and March 2020, the Company increased the aggregate commitment under an existing term loan credit facility (the “December 2019 Term Loan”) which matures on December 30, 2025, by $100,000,000.

The facility matures on October 14, 2026 and bears an initial interest rate of three month LIBOR plus 2.25% margin. The margin may be subsequently adjusted if the Company meets certain sustainability metrics during the term of the loan.
The December 2019 Term Loan and the October 2020 Term Loan are secured by a portfolio of vessels, which also secured some of the Company’s other credit facilities.
In May 2021, the Company amended and restated three term loan credit facilities which increased the aggregate commitments by $79,540,000 and extended maturities by two years.

The three month and six month average LIBOR was 0.2% and 0.2%, respectively (December 31, 2020 – 0.2% and 0.3%, respectively) and the margins ranged between 0.4% and 2.3% as at December 31, 2021 (December 31, 2020 – 0.4% and 4.3%).
For one of our term loan credit facilities with a total principal outstanding of $27,198,000 (December 31, 2020 - $39,970,000), interest is calculated based on the Export-Import Bank of Korea (KEXIM) rate plus 0.7% per annum.

(c)Credit facilities – other:
As of December 31, 2021, the Company’s credit facilities were secured by first-priority mortgages granted on 65 of its vessels, together with other related security. The security for each of the Company’s current secured credit facilities may include:
A first priority mortgage on the collateral vessels funded by the related credit facility;
An assignment of the Company’s time charters and earnings related to the related collateral vessels;
An assignment of the insurance on each of the vessels that are subject to a related mortgage;
An assignment of the Company’s related shipbuilding contracts and the corresponding refund guarantees;
A pledge over shares of various subsidiaries; and
A pledge over the related retention accounts.
As at December 31, 2021, 1,511,365,000 principal amount of indebtedness under the Company’s term loan and revolving credit facilities was secured by a portfolio of 52 vessels, the composition of which can be changed and is subject to a borrowing base and portfolio concentration requirements, as well as compliance with financial covenants and certain negative covenants.
The Company may prepay certain amounts outstanding without penalty, other than breakage costs in certain circumstances. A prepayment may be required as a result of certain events, including without limitation the sale or loss of a vessel, a termination or expiration of a charter (and the inability to enter into a replacement charter acceptable to lenders within a prescribed period of time). The amount that must be prepaid may be calculated based on the loan to market value. In these circumstances, valuations of the Company’s vessels are conducted on a “without charter” basis as required under the credit facility agreement.
Each credit facility contains a mix of financial covenants requiring the Company to maintain minimum liquidity, tangible net worth, interest and principal coverage ratios and/or debt to assets ratios, as defined.
Certain facilities are guaranteed by an intermediate parent entity, in which case the parent entity must meet certain consolidated financial covenants under those term loan facilities including maintaining certain minimum tangible net worth, cash requirements and debt-to-asset ratios.
Some of the facilities also have an interest and principal coverage ratio, debt service coverage and vessel value requirement for the subsidiary borrower. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as at December 31, 2021.
(d)Senior unsecured notes:

In February 2021, the Company issued $200,000,000 of 6.5% senior unsecured sustainability-linked bonds in the Nordic bond market (“2024 Bonds”). In April 2021, the Company issued a further $300,000,000 of senior unsecured sustainability-linked bonds in the Nordic bond market (the “2026 Bonds” and together with the 2024 Bonds, the “Bonds”).

In May 2021, Atlas exchanged an aggregate principal amount of $52,198,825 7.125% senior notes due 2027 of Seaspan Corporation (the “Seaspan 2027 Notes”) for an equivalent amount of its 7.125% senior notes due 2027 (the “Atlas 2027 Notes”), registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and listed on the Nasdaq Global Market. In July 2021, Atlas exchanged an additional $151,000 of Seaspan 2027 Notes for Atlas 2027 Notes, following which the Company redeemed all remaining Seaspan 2027 Notes.

In July 2021, the Company issued $750,000,000 of senior unsecured notes. These notes mature in 2029 and accrue interest at 5.5% per annum, payable semi-annually beginning on February 1, 2022. The notes are a blue transition bond developed to further the Company’s sustainability efforts.

(e)Fairfax Notes:
Pursuant to the Fairfax Exchange, as described in note 3, Atlas exchanged $200,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Fairfax Notes and all $100,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2027 Fairfax Notes for (i) 12,000,000 Series J Preferred Shares, representing total liquidation value of $300,000,000, and (ii) 1,000,000 five year warrants to purchase an equal number of Atlas common shares at an exercise price of $13.71 per share. Subsequent to the Fairfax Exchange, Seaspan paid $300,000,000 to Atlas to settle the exchanged 2026 Fairfax Notes and 2027 Fairfax Notes and the notes were cancelled.

In connection with the Fairfax Exchange, the Fairfax Holders also agreed to amend the terms of the $300,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Fairfax Notes that remained outstanding following the Fairfax Exchange, which included all $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Fairfax Notes and $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Fairfax Notes. The Amendment, among other things, eliminated the Fairfax Holders’ mandatory redemption and put rights and released and discharged all outstanding guarantees and liens on collateral thereunder. The Fairfax Holders also agreed to terminate Seaspan’s Amended and Restated Pledge and Collateral Agent Agreement and to release and discharge all liens on collateral thereof.

In August 2021, the remaining 2025 Fairfax Notes and 2026 Fairfax Notes were redeemed for cash at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest. As a result of the Fairfax Exchange and subsequent redemptions, the Company recorded a loss on debt extinguishment of $121,715,000 for the year ended December 31, 2021, respectively (2020 – $nil; 2019 – $nil), representing the write-off of the existing associated debt discount and deferred financing fees.

(f)Senior Unsecured Exchangeable Notes:

In December 2020, the Company issued $201,250,000 aggregate principal amount of Exchangeable Notes in a private placement. The Exchangeable Notes are exchangeable at the holders’ option into an aggregate 15,474,817 Atlas common shares at an initial exchange price of $13.005 per share, in equivalent cash or a combination of Atlas common shares and cash, as elected by the Company, on or after September 15, 2020, or earlier in the following circumstances:
After December 31, 2020, if the last reported price of an Atlas common share is at least 130% of the exchange price then in effect over a specified measurement period;
If the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of Exchangeable Notes during a specified measurement period is less than 98% of the last reported sale price on Atlas common shares multiplied by the applicable exchange rate; and
Upon the occurrence of certain significant corporate events, or in response to early redemption elected by the Company.

The exchange price is subject to anti-dilution and make-whole clauses.
The holders may require the Company to redeem the Exchangeable Notes held by them upon the occurrence of certain corporate events qualifying as a fundamental change in the business. The Company may redeem the Exchangeable Notes in connection with certain tax-related events or on any business day on or after December 20, 2023 and prior to September 15, 2025, if the last reported sale price of an Atlas common share is at least 130% of the exchange price during a specified measurement period. A redemption of the Exchangeable Notes is made at 100% of the principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The Exchangeable Notes mature on December 15, 2025, unless earlier exchanged, repurchased or redeemed.
Upon issuance, the proceeds from the Exchangeable Notes were allocated between debt, measured at fair value of $195,000,000, and the value of the embedded exchange feature, valued at $6,250,000. The difference between the face value and carrying value of the debt reflects the debt discount, which is amortized through interest expense using an effective interest rate of 4.5%, over the remaining life of the debt. Interest is payable semiannually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, beginning on June 15, 2021.

The fair value of the embedded exchange feature derivative liability was $37,972,000 as of December 31, 2021.

Capped Call Transactions

In connection with the issuance of the Exchangeable Notes, the Company entered into capped call transactions with affiliates of certain of the initial purchasers of the Exchangeable Notes and other financial institutions, using $15,536,000 in proceeds from the issuance, to reduce the potential dilution to Atlas common shares upon any exchange of notes and/or offset any cash payments the Company is required to make upon exchange of the Exchangeable Notes, in excess of the principal amount. They may be settled in cash, shares, or a combination of cash and shares as determined by the settlement method of the Exchangeable Notes, at a strike price with underlying shares equal to that of the Exchangeable Notes and subject to anti-dilution adjustments substantially similar to those applicable to the Exchangeable Notes. The capped calls are exercisable up to a maximum price of $17.85 per share, subject to certain adjustments. The instruments expire on December 15, 2025.

Operating lease liabilities relate to vessel sale-leaseback transactions and other operating leases. Vessel sale-leaseback transactions under operating lease arrangements are, in part, indexed to three month LIBOR, reset on a quarterly basis. For one of the Company’s vessel operating leases, an option to repurchase the vessel exists at the end of its lease term. For all other arrangements, the lease may be terminated prior to the end of the lease term, at the option of the Company, by repurchasing the respective vessels on a specified repurchase date at a pre-determined fair value amount. For one of these arrangements, if the Company elects not to repurchase the vessel, the lessor may choose not to continue the lease until the end of its term. Each sale-leaseback transaction contains financial covenants requiring the Company to maintain certain tangible net worth, interest coverage ratios and debt-to-assets ratios, as defined. These vessels are leased to customers under time charter arrangements.

The Company, through certain of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, has entered into non-recourse or limited recourse sale-leaseback arrangements with financial institutions to fund the acquisition of vessels.
Under these arrangements, the Company has agreed to transfer the vessels to the counterparties and lease the vessels back from the counterparties over the applicable lease term as a financing lease. In the arrangements where the shipbuilding contracts are novated to the counterparties, the counterparties assume responsibility for the remaining payments under the shipbuilding contracts.
In certain of the arrangements, the counterparties are companies whose only assets and operations are to hold the Company’s leases and vessels. The Company operates the vessels during the lease term, supervises the vessels’ construction before the lease term begins, if applicable, and/or is required to purchase the vessels from the counterparties at the end of the lease term. As a result, in most cases, the Company is considered to be the primary beneficiary of the counterparties and consolidates the counterparties for financial reporting purposes. In all cases, these arrangements are considered failed-sales. The vessels are recorded as an asset and the obligations under these arrangements are recorded as a liability. The terms of the leases are as follows:

(i)COSCO Faith - 13100 TEU vessel:
Under this arrangement, the counterparty has provided financing of $109,000,000. The 12-year lease term began in March 2012, which was the vessel’s delivery date.

In January 2020, the Company made a prepayment of $48,316,000 on the remaining balance of the arrangement.
(ii)Leases for three 4500 TEU vessels:
Under these arrangements, the counterparty has provided refinancing of $150,000,000. The five year lease terms began in March 2015. At delivery, the Company sold and leased the vessels back over the terms of the sale-leaseback transactions. At the end of the lease terms, the Company is obligated to purchase the vessels at a pre-determined purchase price. The remaining balance was paid in March 2020.

11.Share Capital:
On February 27, 2020, the Company completed a Reorganization whereby it became a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas, a newly formed entity, to establish a holding company structure. Holders of the Company’s common and preferred shares became holders of Atlas common and preferred shares, as applicable, on a one-for-one basis, maintaining the same number of shares, ownership percentage and associated rights and privileges as they held of Seaspan immediately prior to the Reorganization. The Company’s common shares and preferred shares were cancelled and re-issued to Atlas as common shares. All outstanding common shares held in treasury were cancelled. In addition, as part of the Reorganization, the Company's warrants were assumed by Atlas pursuant to an assignment and assumption agreement and are now exercisable for Atlas common shares.
The Company has 425,000,100 common shares and 150,000,000 preferred shares authorized with par value $0.01 per share at December 31, 2021.

12.Share-based compensation:
In December 2005, Seaspan’s board of directors adopted the Seaspan Corporation Stock Incentive Plan, which was administered by Seaspan’s board of directors and, under which its officers, employees and directors could be granted options, restricted shares, phantom share units and other stock-based awards as determined by the Seaspan board of directors. Upon consummation of the Reorganization, Atlas assumed Seaspan’s equity-based compensation plans, including the Seaspan Corporation Stock Incentive Plan, which was amended and restated as the Atlas Corp. Stock Incentive Plan. Awards previously granted under the Seaspan Corporation Incentive Plan are now exercisable for Atlas common shares instead of Seaspan common shares.

17.Financial instruments:

(a)Fair value:
The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their fair values because of their short term to maturity.
As of December 31, 2021, the fair value of the Company’s revolving credit facilities and term loans excluding deferred financing fees was $2,113,824,000 (December 31, 2020 - $2,599,197,000) and the carrying value was $2,128,629,000 (December 31, 2020 - $2,638,522,000). As of December 31, 2021, the fair value of the Company’s other financing arrangements, excluding deferred financing fees, was $1,419,508,000 (December 31, 2020 - $891,710,000) and the carrying value was $1,363,098,000 (December 31, 2020 - $879,468,000). The fair value of the revolving and term loan credit facilities and other financing arrangements, excluding deferred financing fees, are estimated based on expected principal repayments and interest, discounted by relevant forward rates plus a margin appropriate to the credit risk of the Company. Therefore, the Company has categorized the fair value of these financial instruments as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

As of December 31, 2021, the fair value of the Company’s senior unsecured notes was $1,291,476,000 (December 31, 2020 – $89,207,000) and the carrying value was $1,250,000,000 (December 31, 2020 – $80,000,000). The fair value of the Company’s Exchangeable Notes was $209,566,000 (December 31, 2020 - $195,232,000) and the carrying value was $201,250,000 (December 31, 2020 - $201,250,000) or $196,177,000 (December 31, 2020 - $195,000,000), net of debt discount. The fair value of the Company’s Senior Secured Notes was $456,875,000 and the carrying value was $500,000,000. The fair value is calculated using the present value of expected principal repayments and interest discounted by relevant forward rates plus a margin appropriate to the credit risk of the Company. As a result, these amounts are categorized as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

The Company’s interest rate derivative financial instruments are re-measured to fair value at the end of each reporting period. The fair values of the interest rate derivative financial instruments have been calculated by discounting the future cash flow of both the fixed rate and variable rate interest rate payments. The discount rate was derived from a yield curve created by nationally recognized financial institutions adjusted for the associated credit risk. The fair values of the interest rate derivative financial instruments are determined based on inputs that are readily available in public markets or can be derived from information available in publicly quoted markets. Therefore, the Company has categorized the fair value of these derivative financial instruments as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

The exchange feature embedded in the Exchangeable Notes and capped calls entered into in connection with the Exchangeable Notes are derivatives measured at fair value at the end of each reporting period. The embedded exchange feature derivative is measured at fair value using a partial differential equation, with a Monte Carlo model for certain features. The capped call derivative is measured at fair value using a binomial tree. These models utilize observable and unobservable market data, including stock price, expected volatility, risk-free interest rate and expected dividend yield, as applicable. The embedded exchange feature and capped call derivatives are classified as Level 3 as the Company uses expected volatility that is unobservable and significant to the valuation. In general, an increase in Atlas’s stock price or stock price volatility will increase the fair value of the embedded exchange feature and capped call derivatives which will result in an increase in loss and gain, respectively. As time to the expiration of the derivatives decreases, the fair value of the derivatives will decrease. The volatilities used as of December 31, 2021, for the embedded exchange feature were 44.40% and 41.19% for the capped call. The fair value of the embedded exchange feature and capped calls resulting from a change in volatility are included below.
10% increase in volatility 10% decrease in volatility
Embedded exchange feature $ 44.2  $ 31.4 
Capped calls 48.1  34.8 
Unobservable inputs for recurring and non-recurring Level 3 disclosures are obtained from third parties whenever possible and reviewed by the Company for reasonableness.

(b) Interest rate swap derivatives:

The Company uses interest rate derivative financial instruments, consisting of interest rate swaps, to manage its interest rate risk associated with its variable rate debt. If interest rates remain at their current levels, the Company expects that $16,818,000 would be settled in cash in the next 12 months on instruments maturing after December 31, 2021.

ITEM 2 - MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following should be read in conjunction with the unaudited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in this Report and the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on an Atlas Corp. Form 6-K. Unless otherwise indicated, all amounts are presented in U.S. dollars, or USD. We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Overview
General
Seaspan was incorporated on May 3, 2005, in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Seaspan is a leading independent charter owner and manager of containerships, which we charter primarily pursuant to long-term, fixed-rate time charters with major container liner companies. We primarily deploy our vessels on long-term, fixed-rate time charters to take advantage of the stable cash flow and high utilization rates that are typically associated with long-term time charters. As of March 10, 2022, we operated a fleet of 132 vessels that have an average age of approximately eight years, on a TEU weighted basis. 
Customers for our operating fleet as at March 10, 2022 are as follows:

Customer for Current Fleet Number of vessels under charter TEUs under charter
CMA CGM 17 160,950
COSCO 28 243,750
Hapag-Lloyd 14 114,350
Maersk 20 90,500
MSC 9 103,600
ONE 23 194,550
Yang Ming Marine 15 210,000
ZIM 6 30,600

Our primary objective for Seaspan is to continue to grow our containership leasing business through accretive vessel acquisitions as market conditions allow. Most of our customers’ containership business revenues are derived from the shipment of goods from the Asia Pacific region to various overseas export markets in the United States and in Europe.
We use the term “twenty-foot equivalent unit”, or TEU, the international standard measure of containers, in describing the capacity of our containerships, which are also referred to as our “vessels”.

Vessel sales

On October 29, 2021, the Company sold one 4,250 TEU vessel for an aggregate purchase price of $38.3 million. Through a series of transactions, the vessel was ultimately purchased by a wholly owned subsidiary of Zhejiang Energy Atlas Marine Technology Co., Ltd, which is 50% owned by Atlas. Seaspan continues to manage the ship operations of the vessel.

In December 2021, we entered into agreements to sell six 4,250 TEU vessels for an aggregate $186.8 million. Three of the vessels will ultimately be purchased by subsidiaries of the ZE JV and three of the vessels are being purchased by a liner customer. One sale completed in February 2022 for gross proceeds of $32.8 million. We continue to manage the ship operations of this vessel. The remaining five vessel sales are expected to complete in the second quarter of 2022, subject to closing conditions.
Atlas Exchange Offer and Notes Redemptions
In May 2021, Atlas exchanged an aggregate principal amount of $52.2 million 7.125% senior notes due 2027 of Seaspan (the “Seaspan 2027 Notes”) for an equivalent amount of its 7.125% senior notes due 2027 (the “Atlas 2027 Notes”). In July 2021, Atlas exchanged an additional $151,000 of Seaspan 2027 Notes for Atlas 2027 Notes, following which the Company redeemed the remaining $27.6 million of Seaspan 2027 Notes for cash plus accrued and unpaid interest.
Fairfax Notes Exchange and Redemption
In June 2021, Atlas and Seaspan completed an exchange and amendment of $600.0 million aggregate principal amount of Seaspan’s senior notes, including $250.0 million of 2025 Fairfax Notes, $250.0 million of 2026 Fairfax Notes and $100.0 million of 2027 Fairfax Notes. The outstanding Fairfax Notes were held by certain affiliates of Fairfax Financial Holding Limited (the “Fairfax Holders”).
Pursuant to this transaction, the Company exchanged $200.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Fairfax Notes and all $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 2027 Fairfax Notes for (i) 12,000,000 Series J 7.00% Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Shares of Atlas, representing total liquidation value of $300.0 million and (ii) 1,000,000 five year warrants to purchase an equal number of Atlas common shares at an exercise price of $13.71 per share (the “Fairfax Exchange”). The exchanged 2026 Fairfax Notes and 2027 Fairfax Notes were subsequently cancelled.
In August 2021, the Company redeemed the remaining Fairfax Notes, which included $250.0 million of 2025 Fairfax Notes and $50.0 million of 2026 Fairfax Notes, for cash on August 23, 2021.
Sale-Leaseback Financing
In April 2021, the Company entered into $235.0 million in sale-leaseback financing arrangements (the “Sale-Leasebacks”) to refinance three operating vessels, the funding of which was completed in May 2021.
Enhancement of the Company’s Vessel Portfolio Financing Program
In May 2021, the Company entered into amendments and restatements (the “Amendment and Restatement”) of the senior secured loan facilities and intercreditor and proceeds agreement that compromise its vessel portfolio financing program (the “Program”) to, among other things, (i) increase the capacity under the Program to $2.5 billion, including the Sustainability-Linked Notes, (ii) increase the size of the revolving credit facility from $300.0 million to $400.0 million, (iii) increase the commitments under the bank loan facilities by $180.0 million and (iv) extend the maturities of tranches due to 2024 and 2025 by approximately two years.

Additional Financings
In January 2021, the Company made a payment of $69.2 million to early terminate a sale-leaseback financing arrangement secured by a 11,000 TEU vessel. In March 2021, the Company entered into a new sale-leaseback financing arrangement for $83.7 million, secured by the same 11,000 TEU vessel.

In April through November 2021, the Company entered into $3.3 billion in sale-leaseback financing arrangements (the “Newbuild Sale-Leasebacks”) related to 35 newbuild containerships, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Newbuild Sale-Leasebacks partially fund pre-delivery payments related to the 35 newbuild containerships. As of December 31, 2021, the Company received aggregate funding of $310.4 million from these financings related to vessels under construction and three delivered vessels.
In October and December 2021, the Company entered into facility agreements providing for an aggregate $2.3 billion in term loans, to finance 18 newbuild containerships. The facility agreements partially fund pre-delivery payments relating to the 18 vessels. At delivery, pursuant to the facility agreements, the Company may elect to convert the term loan in respect of each vessel into a lease financing arrangement, whereby we will sell the vessel to Japanese special purpose companies ("SPCs") and lease it back over a term of approximately 14 years, with one or more options to purchase the vessel at the 9.5 year anniversary and, for certain vessels, the 12-year anniversary of the lease for a pre-determined fair value purchase price. As at December 31, 2021, the Company has not drawn on these facilities.

In October 2021, the Company entered into agreements relating to underwritten financing arrangements totaling $1.4 billion, related to 17 newbuild containerships. In December 2021, the Company entered into lease financing arrangements for two
35


of the 17 vessels. The lease financing arrangements are expected to provide gross financing proceeds of approximately $113.0 million per vessel upon delivery of each vessel, or $226.0 million in total. Under the lease financing arrangements, we will sell the vessels to SPCs and lease the vessels back over a term of 13.25 years, with an option to purchase the vessels at the 5-year anniversary of the lease for a pre-determined fair value purchase price.
In February 2022, the Company entered into a $250.0 million 3-year sustainability-linked unsecured revolving credit facility, to be used to fund vessels under construction and secondhand vessel acquisitions and for general corporate purposes (the “2022 RCF”). The 2022 RCF replaces the Company’s $150.0 million 2-year unsecured revolving credit facility and bears interest at market rate. To date, the Company has not drawn on the 2022 RCF.
Debt Offerings
In February 2021 and April 2021, we issued $200.0 million and $300.0 million, respectively, of 6.5% senior unsecured sustainability-linked bonds into the Nordic marketplace (collectively, the “NOK Bonds”). The bonds mature in February 2024 and April 2026, respectively, and bear interest at 6.5% per annum. If certain sustainability linked targets in the NOK Bonds are met, they are to be redeemed at maturity at 100.0% of the initial principal amount. If the sustainability linked targets are not met, the NOK Bonds are to be settled at maturity at 100.5% of the initial principal amount. The NOK Bonds are listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
In May 2021, the Company entered into a note purchase agreement to issue, in a private placement (the “Private Placement”), $500.0 million aggregate principal amount of fixed rate, sustainability-linked senior secured notes (the “Senior Secured Notes”).

The Company issued the remaining $50.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.91% Series B Senior Secured Notes due 2031 in August 2021. The Private Placement was completed as part of an amendment and upsize of the Program.
In July 2021, the Company issued $750.0 million aggregate principal amount of 5.50% senior unsecured notes due 2029. The notes are a blue transition bond and Seaspan’s senior unsecured obligations and accrue interest at a rate of 5.50% per year, payable semi-annually in arrears on February 1 and August 1 of each year, beginning on February 1, 2022. The notes are not guaranteed by Atlas or any of its or Seaspan’s respective subsidiaries. The notes will mature on August 1, 2029, unless earlier repurchased or redeemed.
Debt Offerings
In March 2022, Seaspan entered into a joint venture agreement to form a procurement joint venture with a leading independent ship management company to leverage the combined purchasing power of the partners and their respective affiliates to procure products and services. The business of the joint venture may be expanded in future to include offering procurement services to third party customers and any other business as may be agreed between the partners.

Impact of COVID-19 on our Business
The COVID-19 pandemic initially negatively affected global demand for seaborne transportation, decreasing freight and charter rates in the first half of 2020. Since then, however, the shipping industry has seen robust demand for seaborne transportation, with freight volumes and freight rates rebounding sharply. High demand for containerships has resulted in negligible vessel capacity available in certain size segments as of December 31, 2021, increasing charter rates for all segments and enabling us to recharter and forward fix many of our vessels which had charters expiring this year or in the near term at higher rates. Increased demand has also enabled us to execute shipbuilding contracts for 70 newbuilds since December 2020, with long-term charters attached. We believe future significant downside risk to our containership business is mitigated by our longstanding business relationships and the long-term contracts securing the majority of our fleet.
In our containership business, costs of operations have increased due to COVID-19’s impact on supply chains, on workers’, surveyors’ and other specialists’ access to the shipyards to complete repairs and inspections, and on the ability to conduct crew transfers. The average daily operating cost per vessel per day for vessels on time charter for the year ended December 31, 2021 increased to $6,766.0 compared to $6,010.0 per vessel per day for the year ended December 31, 2020. To mitigate, we have made logistical changes and worked with vendors to ensure continued access to equipment and supplies. We have also intentionally delayed or altered plans for repairs and vessel projects where practicable. For our crew, we have developed and implemented extended onboard management procedures and we have prepared response plans should any crew member fall ill onboard. In addition, although embarkation and disembarkation of seafarers remains challenging and there are increased costs associated, we are conducting crew changes at ports where transfers are permitted. Management has obtained agreements from certain charterers to alter trading routes to facilitate crew changes.
Some of our office staff continue to work remotely, but many have started to return to our physical offices. The return to office is being done on a gradual basis, as local health authorities ease COVID-19 related restrictions. During 2021, there was no meaningful increase in costs or expenses resulting from measures to facilitate remote working.
We continuously monitor the developing situation, as well as our customers’ response thereto, and make all necessary preparations to address and mitigate, to the extent possible, the impact of COVID-19 to our Company.

Impact of Recent Developments in Ukraine
In February 2022, as a result of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, economic sanctions were imposed by the U.S., the EU, the UK and a number of other countries on Russian financial institutions, businesses and individuals, as well as certain regions within the Donbas region of Ukraine. While it is difficult to estimate the impact of current or future sanctions on the Company’s business and financial position, these sanctions could adversely impact the Company’s operations and/or financial results. In the near term, we expect increased volatility in the region due to these geopolitical events and, with the support of our customers, our vessels have ceased trading to Russia for the time being. We also anticipate we could face challenges to recruit seafarers in sufficient numbers to replace Ukrainians seafarers who are not able or permitted to leave their country, given that Ukrainians constitute a significant number of our seafarers. Finally, we expect that the Russia-Ukraine conflict may exacerbate market volatility, and may impact access to and pricing of capital. For more information regarding the risks relating to economic sanctions as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as well as the impact on retaining and sourcing our crew, see “Item 3. Key Information—D. Risk Factors” in Atlas' Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Operating Results
Ownership Days are the number of days a vessel is owned and available for charter. Ownership Days On-Hire are the number of days a vessel is available to the charterer for use. The primary driver of Ownership Days is the increase or decrease in the number of vessels in our fleet.
Total Ownership Days increased by 2,466 days for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared with the same period in 2020. The increase was due to the delivery of seven vessels between December 2020 and December 2021, which contributed 1,040 days. Additionally, full year benefits from the fifteen vessels delivered during 2020 contributed 1,644 days.
Vessel Utilization represents the number of Ownership Days On-Hire as a percentage of Total Ownership Days. The following table summarizes Seaspan’s Vessel Utilization for the last eight consecutive quarters:
