Second Quarter Developments

Vessel Deliveries

Seaspan accepted delivery of the Hanjin Namu and the Hanjin Tabul on May 30, 2014 and June 30, 2014, respectively, bringing its operating fleet to a total of 74 vessels as of June 30, 2014. Both 10000 TEU vessels, constructed using Seaspan's fuel-efficient SAVER design, commenced ten-year, fixed-rate time charters with Hanjin Shipping Co. Ltd.

Issuance of $345.0 Million 6.375% Senior Unsecured Notes Due 2019

On April 3, 2014, Seaspan issued in a registered public offering 13,800,000 senior unsecured notes (the "Notes") at a price of $25.00 per note for net proceeds of approximately $340.4 million, including the full exercise of the underwriters' option to purchase an additional 1,800,000 Notes. The Notes mature on April 30, 2019 and bear interest at a rate of 6.375% per year, payable quarterly. Seaspan used a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to repay its $125.0 million credit facility, and intends to use the remaining net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include funding vessel acquisitions and repaying indebtedness under other outstanding credit facilities.

Loan Facility Transactions

On May 1, 2014, Seaspan entered into a 364-day unsecured revolving loan facility with various banks for up to $100.0 million to be used to fund vessels under construction and for general corporate purposes. The facility bears interest at market rates.

Vessel Delivery

On July 16, 2014, Seaspan accepted delivery of a 10000 TEU containership, the MOL Bravo, expanding the Company's operating fleet to 75 vessels. The newbuilding containership was constructed at Jiangsu Yangzi Xinfu Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. using Seaspan's fuel-efficient SAVER design. The MOL Bravo commenced an eight-year, fixed-rate time charter with Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. ("MOL").

$220 Million Lease Financings

On July 11, 2014 Seaspan entered into lease financing agreements with Asian special purpose companies (collectively, the "SPCs") for two 10000 TEU newbuilding vessels that are chartered to MOL. The lease financing agreements (the "Lease Financing Arrangements") are expected to provide gross proceeds of approximately $110 million per vessel, or $220 million in total. Under the Lease Financing Arrangements, Seaspan will sell the vessels to the SPCs, lease the vessels back from the SPCs over a term of approximately 8.5 years, and have an option to purchase the vessels at the end of the term for a pre-determined purchase price. On July 16, 2014, Seaspan financed the purchase of the MOL Bravo through the Lease Financing Arrangements and received gross proceeds of $110 million. Seaspan expects to finance the purchase of the MOL Brightness, scheduled for delivery during the fourth quarter of 2014 through the Lease Financing Arrangements. These Lease Financing Arrangements will provide financing at market rates.

Proposed Extensions of GCI Right of First Refusal Agreement, CEO Employment Agreement and Related Agreements

Greater China Intermodal Investments LLC ("GCI") is an investment vehicle established with an affiliate of global asset manager The Carlyle Group, and others, including affiliates of Seaspan's director Graham Porter and of Seaspan's largest shareholder, Dennis R. Washington. Seaspan has a right of first refusal (the "ROFR") on containership investment opportunities available to GCI and a right of first offer (the "ROFO") for certain containerships GCI may propose to sell. The ROFR and ROFO expire on March 31, 2015. The investors in GCI intend to extend the terms of the ROFR and ROFO by one year to March 31, 2016. By extending the ROFR, Seaspan believes it will continue to have increased buying power and scale by which it can selectively and cost effectively grow its fleet as well as better serve its customers. In addition, through this venture, Seaspan believes that it will continue to realize better volume discounts and obtain more attractive financing than it would otherwise be able to achieve on its own. Since GCI was formed, Seaspan has expanded its managed fleet by 40 containerships, including 30 newbuilding vessels on order or under construction.

In connection with the planned extension of the ROFR and ROFO, Seaspan intends to extend through March 31, 2016 its employment and transaction services agreements with Gerry Wang and its financing services agreement with Tiger Ventures Limited ("Tiger Ventures"), an affiliate of Mr. Porter.

For additional information about GCI, the ROFR, the ROFO and the terms of the employment and transaction services agreements with Mr. Wang and the financing services agreement with Tiger Ventures, please read "Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions" in Seaspan's Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2013. The proposed transactions described above remain subject to negotiation of mutually acceptable terms and documentation and approval of the conflicts committee of Seaspan's board of directors, and such transactions may not happen pursuant to the terms described above, if at all.

Time Charters

The Madinah is expected to re-deliver to Seaspan on August 4, 2014 and will be off-charter until a charter is entered into.

At the beginning of 2014, Seaspan had 71 vessels in operation. Seaspan accepted delivery of three newbuilding vessels during the six months ended June 30, 2014, bringing its fleet to a total of 74 vessels in operation as at June 30, 2014. Revenue from time charters is determined primarily by the number of operating days, and ship operating expense is determined primarily by the number of ownership days.

Revenue

Revenue increased by 3.6% and 2.7% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, over the same periods for 2013. These increases were due primarily to the two 10000 TEU vessels which commenced time charters in the first half of 2014, the impact of a full quarter of revenue contribution from the two 4600 TEU secondhand vessels delivered in mid-2013 and a decrease in unscheduled off-hire. These increases were partially offset by lower charter rates for three vessels which were on short-term charters during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, an increase in scheduled off-hire, and a decrease in vessel management revenue.

The increases in operating days and the related financial impact thereof for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 relative to the corresponding periods in 2013, are attributable to the following:

Vessel utilization was 99.3% and 99.1% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to 99.0% and 97.5% for the same periods in 2013.

The increase in vessel utilization for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to the same period in 2013, was primarily due to a 209-day decrease in unscheduled off-hire. In the six months ended June 30, 2014, there were 61 days of unscheduled off-hire which included 50 off-charter days compared to 270 days of unscheduled off-hire in the six months ended June 30, 2013, which included 238 off-charter days. However, during the six months ended June 30, 2014, Seaspan completed four scheduled dry-dockings that resulted in 53 days of scheduled off-hire, compared to two scheduled dry-dockings that resulted in 19 days of scheduled off-hire in the same period of 2013.

Seaspan completed dry-dockings for the following vessels during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014:


                    Vessel                     Completed
                    -------------------- ---------------

                    CSCL Callao                       Q2

Seaspan's cumulative vessel utilization since its initial public offering in August 2005 through June 30, 2014 is approximately 99.0% or 99.3% if the impact of off-charter days is excluded.

Ship Operating Expense

Ship operating expense increased by 10.0% to $41.1 million and by 9.9% to $82.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2013, due primarily to an increase in crew wages, stores, spares, repairs and ship management infrastructure costs. Ownership and managed days also increased by 2.2% and by 2.6% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2013, which contributed to the increase in ship operating expense. The increase in ownership days was due to the newbuilding vessel deliveries in 2014 and a full period of ownership for the vessels delivered in mid-2013. Crew wages increased due to an increase in the number of crew as well as the earlier timing of wage increases that occurred in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013. In addition, the purchase of stores and spare parts occurred earlier in 2014 than in 2013. Seaspan expects ship operating expense to increase as the average size of its vessels increases and as its fleet ages.

Depreciation and Amortization Expense

The increase in depreciation and amortization expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was due to the increase in the size of the fleet from the 2014 deliveries. In addition, two vessels were delivered in mid-2013 and a full period of depreciation for these vessels was expensed in the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

General and Administrative Expense

General and administrative expense decreased by 36.8% to $7.5 million and by 20.9% to $15.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to the same periods in 2013.

The decreases were primarily due to decreases of $4.5 million and $4.8 million for the three and six months ended, respectively, in stock-based compensation expense related to non-cash stock appreciation rights ("SARs") granted to Seaspan's Chief Executive Officer in December 2012 and to certain members of management in March 2013. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, $2.6 million of accelerated stock-based compensation was recognized related to the vesting of the first tranche of SARs.

The decrease for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was partially offset by an increase in executive compensation and general corporate expenses of $0.7 million.

Interest Expense

At June 30, 2014, Seaspan had total borrowings of $3.9 billion, which consisted of long-term debt of $3.3 billion and other long-term liabilities of $0.6 billion. At June 30, 2013, Seaspan had total borrowings of $3.7 billion, which consisted of long-term debt of $3.1 billion and other long-term liabilities of $0.6 billion. At June 30, 2014, Seaspan's operating borrowings were $3.62 billion compared to $3.55 billion at June 30, 2013. Interest expense is comprised primarily of interest incurred on long-term debt and other long-term liabilities relating to operating vessels at either the variable rate calculated by reference to LIBOR plus the applicable margin or at fixed rates. Although Seaspan has entered into fixed interest rate swaps for much of its variable rate debt, the difference between the variable interest rate and the swapped fixed-rate on operating debt is recorded in Seaspan's change in fair value of financial instruments. Interest expense also includes a non-cash reclassification of amounts from accumulated other comprehensive loss related to previously designated hedging relationships. Interest incurred on Seaspan's borrowings related to vessels under construction is capitalized to the cost of the respective vessels under construction.

Interest expense increased by $7.7 million to $23.0 million and by $9.8 million to $40.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2013. The increase in interest expense was primarily due to an increase in the cost of borrowings. The increase in cost of borrowings is related to the refinancing of Seaspan's $1.0 billion credit facility in January 2014 and certain of its term loans which have higher margins than the facilities outstanding for the comparative periods, in addition to higher interest rates under the fixed-rate Notes.

Change in Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The change in fair value of financial instruments resulted in losses of $33.0 million and $69.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to gains of $71.2 million and $68.5 million for the same periods in 2013, respectively. The change in fair value for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to decreases in the forward LIBOR curve and the effect of the passage of time. In addition, during the first quarter of 2014 there was an early termination of one of Seaspan's swaps in connection with the refinancing of its $1.0 billion credit facility.

The fair value of interest rate swap and swaption agreements is subject to change based on the company-specific credit risk of Seaspan and of the counterparty included in the discount factor and the interest rate implied by the current swap curve, including its relative steepness. In determining the fair value, these factors are based on current information available to Seaspan. These factors are expected to change through the life of the instruments, causing the fair value to fluctuate significantly due to the large notional amounts and long-term nature of Seaspan's derivative instruments. Because these factors may change, the fair value of the instruments is an estimate and may deviate significantly from the actual cash settlements realized over the term of the instruments. Seaspan's valuation techniques have not changed and remain consistent with those followed by other valuation practitioners.

Description of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

A. Cash Available for Distribution to Common Shareholders

Cash available for distribution to common shareholders is defined as net earnings adjusted for depreciation and amortization, interest expense, amortization of deferred charges, refinancing expenses and costs, share-based compensation, change in fair value of financial instruments, bareboat charter adjustment, amounts paid for dry-docking, cash dividends paid on preferred shares, interest expense at the hedged rate and certain other items that Seaspan believes are not representative of its operating performance.

Cash available for distribution to common shareholders is a non-GAAP measure used to assist in evaluating Seaspan's ability to make quarterly cash dividends before reserves for replacement capital expenditures. Cash available for distribution to common shareholders is not defined by United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings or any other indicator of Seaspan's performance required to be reported by GAAP.

B. Normalized Net Earnings and Normalized Earnings per Share

Normalized net earnings is defined as net earnings adjusted for items such as interest expense, change in fair value of financial instruments, interest expense at the hedged rate, refinancing expenses and costs and certain other items Seaspan believes affect the comparability of operating results. Normalized net earnings is a useful measure because it excludes those items that Seaspan believes are not representative of its operating performance.

Normalized net earnings is not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings or any other indicator of Seaspan's performance required to be reported by GAAP.

Normalized earnings per share, converted, is calculated as normalized net earnings, less dividends on Series C (excluding the retained earnings impact of any repurchases), Series D and Series E preferred shares, divided by the "converted" number of shares outstanding for the period. On January 30, 2014, Seaspan's outstanding 200,000 Series A preferred shares automatically converted into a total of 23,177,175 Class A common shares pursuant to Seaspan's articles of incorporation. The conversion provisions provided for automatic conversion to Class A common shares at a price of $15.00 per share (and based on the applicable liquidation preference of the Series A preferred shares), if the conversion occurred on or after January 30, 2014 and the trailing 30-day average trading price of the common shares was equal to or above $15.00. If the share price was less than $15.00, then Seaspan could choose to not convert the preferred shares and to increase the annual increase in the liquidation preference to 15% per annum from 12%. The "converted" number of shares includes: basic weighted average number of shares, share-based compensation, contingent consideration, shares held in escrow and the impact of the Series A preferred shares converted at $15.00 per share. This method reflects Seaspan's ability to control the conversion if the share price had been less than $15.00 and the per share impact of the preferred shares conversion at $15.00.

Normalized net earnings and normalized earnings per share, converted, are not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings, earnings per share or any other indicator of Seaspan's performance required to be reported by GAAP.

                             SEASPAN CORPORATION
                RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
          FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2014 AND 2013
           (IN THOUSANDS OF US DOLLARS, EXCEPT PER SHARE AMOUNTS)

C. Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings before interest expense and other debt-related expenses, income tax expense, interest income, depreciation and amortization, amortization of deferred charges, refinancing expenses and costs, share-based compensation, bareboat charter adjustment, change in fair value of financial instruments, and certain other items that Seaspan believes are not representative of its operating performance.

In the third quarter of 2013, the definition of Adjusted EBITDA was revised to exclude share-based compensation expense and, accordingly, the comparative figures for the prior periods have been adjusted to reflect this change. The impact of excluding share-based compensation resulted in an increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 of approximately 5.6% and 3.9%, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing Seaspan's results of operations. Seaspan believes that this measure is useful in assessing performance and highlighting trends on an overall basis. Seaspan also believes that this measure can be useful in comparing its results with those of other companies. 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 Seaspan's performance required to be reported by GAAP.

(1) In April 2014, Seaspan issued in a registered public offering 13,800,000
    senior unsecured notes. Seaspan used a portion of the net proceeds from
    the offering to repay its $125.0 million credit facility. In connection
    with the refinancing, Seaspan incurred refinancing expenses and costs of
    $2.8 million, of which $0.5 million was cash and $2.3 million was non-
    cash.

(2) In the second half of 2011, Seaspan entered into agreements to bareboat
    charter four 4800 TEU vessels to Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A.
    ("MSC") for a five-year term, beginning from vessel delivery dates that
    occurred in 2011. Upon delivery of the vessels to MSC, the transactions
    were accounted for as sales-type leases. The vessels were disposed of
    and a gross investment in lease was recorded, which is being amortized
    to income through revenue. The bareboat charter adjustment is included
    to reverse the GAAP accounting treatment and reflect the transaction as
    if the vessels had not been disposed of. Therefore, the bareboat charter
    fees are added back and the interest income from leasing, which is
    recorded in revenue, is deducted resulting in a net bareboat charter
    adjustment.

(3) Interest expense at the hedged rate is calculated as the interest
    incurred on operating debt at the fixed rate on the related interest
    rate swaps plus the applicable margin on the related credit facilities
    and variable rate leases, on an accrual basis. Interest expense on fixed
    rate borrowings is calculated on the effective interest rate.


(4) Normalized earnings per share, converted, increased for the three
    months, and decreased for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as detailed
    in the table below:

--------------------------------------------------
(a) The increases in normalized net earnings are primarily due to increases
    in revenue of $6.1 million and $9.1 million and decreases in general and
    administrative expenses of $4.4 million and $4.1 million, partially
    offset by increases in ship operating expenses of $3.7 million and $7.4
    million, and increases in depreciation and amortization expense of $1.8
    million and $2.7 million, for the three and six months ended June 30,
    2014, respectively. Please read "Results for the Three and Six Months
    Ended June 30, 2014" for a description of the increases in revenue, ship
    operating expense, and depreciation and amortization expense, and the
    decreases in general and administrative expense.
