The Houston company has pushed back the expiration date a second time for the acquisition of Tampa-based Keystone, also an owner and operator of funeral homes and which trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The new date is March 19.

As of March 1, Service Corp. (NYSE: SCI) also will increase its offer by 7 cents per share for a total of $8.07 a share. That will raise the purchase price to nearly $260 million from the initial proposed offer of $256 million.
