Service Corporation International Announces Third Quarter 2009 Financial Results
Date:11/4/2009

ased 4.6%, primarily related to soft demand experienced in our markets. We believe this decline is consistent with trends experienced by other funeral service providers and industry vendors.
  • The comparable average revenue per funeral service grew 0.1% 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 1.9%.
  • The cremation rate increased 50 basis points to 42.8% in the third quarter of 2009 compared to 42.3% for the same period of 2008.
  • Comparable funeral gross profit increased $10.0 million, or 16.7%, and gross margin percentage increased to 21.6% compared to 17.7% in 2008 due to lower variable merchandise costs, a decline in personnel costs related to work force initiatives and a reduction in our self-insurance reserves, which were partially offset by the impact of lower funeral services performed.
  • Preneed funeral sales production decreased $3.8 million, or 3.0%. Total funeral contracts sold decreased 2.5% while the average revenue per contract sold decreased 0.5%. Preneed funeral sales are deferred and recognized as revenues in the future when the funeral service is performed.
  • Comparable Cemetery Results
