Seaspan Buys Two Ships

Wednesday, February 15, 2006
Seaspan Corporation announced that it has agreed to purchase two new building vessels from affiliates of Conti Holding GmbH & Co. KG of Germany, increasing Seaspan’s total fleet to 25 vessels. Seaspan will acquire the two 3,500 TEU vessels upon their delivery in February and July 2007 respectively from Zhejiang Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. in China. The total delivered cost is expected to be approximately $50 million per vessel, subject to certain pre-delivery expenses remaining at budgeted levels. Seaspan also announced that it has arranged simultaneous twelve-year charter agreements for these vessels with Cosco Container Lines Co., Ltd. at $19,000 per day. Seaspan Management Services Limited will supervise the construction of the new vessels and operate both ships for Seaspan at an initial fixed rate of $4,200 per day. Each new vessel is expected to contribute between $5 million and $5.5 million in incremental EBITDA per annum upon delivery. This will result in an increase in distributable cash when the vessels are delivered and operating.
