SINGAPORE : The Singaporean-headquartered container carrier Ocean Network Express (ONE) is a member of the Poseidon Acquisition Corp, a consortium that has proposed to acquire all the outstanding common shares of Atlas Corp that are not owned or controlled by the consortium members.

Atlas Corp said on 4 August that it has received a takeover offer from the consortium group in an all-cash deal for US$3.64 billion.

Poseidon Acquisition Corp comprises Atlas’ board chairman David Sokol, affiliates of Canadian investment company Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd, the Washington Family and ONE.
