Financial Results Summary

Revenue increased by 36.6% to $386.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared with the same period in 2019. APR represented 77.6% and Seaspan represented 22.4% of the total increase compared to the third quarter of 2019. Revenue increase was driven primarily from thirteen vessels delivered between December 2019 and September 2020, and the contribution from APR.

Adjusted EBITDA was $249.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of 38.8% compared to the same period in 2019. This was driven by the contribution of APR and increased Seaspan contribution from the delivery of thirteen vessels, in addition to lower operating lease expense due to lower LIBOR.

FFO increased by 96.0% to $173.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared with the same period in 2019. This reflects revenue contributions from APR and new vessels, and lower interest expense.

LiquidityAs of September 30, 2020, Atlas had total liquidity of $427.6 million, consisting of $220.6 million of cash and cash equivalents and $207.0 million of availability under undrawn committed revolving credit facilities. As of September 30, 2020, Atlas had an unencumbered asset base including 30 vessels with a book value of $1.03 billion(1).

Seaspan Corporate DevelopmentsIn August and September 2020, Seaspan received delivery of two 13,000 TEU containerships that are on long-term charters with leading global liners.

In October and November 2020, Seaspan received delivery of two high-quality 12,000 TEU containerships, built in 2018, both with committed long-term charters with leading global liners.

In October 2020, Seaspan closed a $200.0 million sustainability-linked loan, increasing the capacity of the company's innovative portfolio financing program to $1.8 billion.

APR Corporate DevelopmentsAPR commenced an operational realignment program to enhance its fast power solutions and focus on developing and building longer-term power projects.

On September 30, 2020 APR concluded the term of its contract for three peaking power gas-fired plants in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico.

DistributionThe Board of Directors of Atlas has declared a quarterly distribution in the amount of $0.125 per common share, payable on October 30, 2020, unchanged from the prior quarter.

(1)

The change in contingent consideration asset relates to the mark to market impact of contingent consideration related to the acquisition of APR Energy. Pursuant to the acquisition agreement, the sellers of APR Energy 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 "Contingent Asset Arrangement"). The indemnification will end on April 30, 2022 or earlier if certain other conditions in the agreement are met. 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 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 include amounts relating to preferred shares, corporate headquarters and elimination of intercompany transactions.

(1)

The change in contingent consideration asset relates to the mark to market impact of contingent consideration related to the acquisition of APR Energy. Pursuant to the acquisition agreement, the sellers of APR Energy 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 "Contingent Asset Arrangement"). The indemnification will end on April 30, 2022 or earlier if certain other conditions in the agreement are met. 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 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 include amounts relating to preferred shares, corporate headquarters and elimination of intercompany transactions.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes various financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the SEC. These non-GAAP financial measures, which include FFO, FFO Per Share, Diluted (FFO Per Share), Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt and Total Borrowings, are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered substitutes for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

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 and certain other items that the Company believes are not representative of its operating performance. FFO and FFO Per Share are useful performance measures because they exclude those items that the Company believes are not representative of its performance. Please refer to the Funds From Operation section of this release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to net earnings.

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 EBITDA represents net income before interest, taxes, 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 and other expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing the Company's results of operations. The Company believes that this measure is useful in assessing performance and highlighting trends on an overall basis. The Company 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 to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort because items that impact those GAAP financial measures are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. These items include, but are not limited to, income tax expense, gains/losses on sale, loss on derivative instruments, change in contingent consideration asset and loss on foreign currency repatriation. Such information 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.

Net Debt and Total Borrowings provide useful information to investors in assessing the Company's leverage. The Company believes this measure is useful in assessing the Company's ability to settle contracted debt payments. The Company 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.

  • the continued availability of services, equipment and software from subcontractors or third-party suppliers required to provide APR's power generation solutions;
  • APR's ability to protect its intellectual property and defend against possible third-party infringement claims relating to its power generation solutions;
  • potential liability from future litigation; and
  • other factors detailed from time to time in Atlas' periodic reports.

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.

Atlas does not intend to revise any forward-looking statements in order to reflect any change in its expectations or events or circumstances that may subsequently arise. Atlas expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise any of these forward-looking statements, whether because of future events, new information, a change in Atlas' views or expectations, or otherwise.
