Service Corporation International Announces First Quarter 2009 Financial Results
Date:5/6/2009

008, and an additional day due to leap year in the prior year quarter.
  • The comparable average revenue per funeral service grew 0.7% over the prior year quarter. Excluding an unfavorable Canadian currency impact and lower funeral trust fund income, the average revenue per funeral service grew approximately 4.0%.
  • The cremation rate increased 190 basis points to 42.9% in the first quarter of 2009 compared to 41.0% for the same period of 2008, which resulted in lower revenues of approximately $4.7 million, or $70 per funeral service.
  • Comparable funeral gross profit decreased $22.7 million, or 20.9%, due to the impact of lower funeral services performed and a decrease in funeral trust fund income, which were partially offset by lower variable merchandise costs and a decline in personnel costs related to work force initiatives. The gross margin percentage decreased to 23.9% compared to 27.1% in 2008.
  • Preneed funeral sales production increased $1.2 million, or 1.1%. Total funeral contracts sold increased 1.9% while the average revenue per contract sold decreased 0.7%. Excluding an unfavorable Canadian currency impact, the average revenue grew 1.9%. Preneed funeral sales are deferred and recognized in the future when the funeral service is performed.
