LONDON, July 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Seaspan Corporation ("Seaspan"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Corp. ("Atlas") (NYSE: ATCO), today announced that it intends to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $500 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2029 (the "Notes"). Seaspan intends to allocate the net proceeds of the offering to acquire, finance or refinance, in whole or in part, certain new and/or existing eligible projects as defined in the offering memorandum.

The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Seaspan. The Notes will not be guaranteed by Atlas or any of its subsidiaries. The Notes are expected to pay interest semiannually and will mature on August 1, 2029, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms. The final terms of the Notes, including the interest rate and other terms, will be determined by negotiations between Seaspan and the initial purchasers of the Notes.

The Notes will be offered and sold only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and may be offered and sold outside the United States to a non-U.S. person pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of these Notes, nor shall there be any offer or sale of the Notes in any state, or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
