Service Corporation International (NYSE: SCI), the largest provider of deathcare products and services in North America, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, SCI Alliance Acquisition Corporation, has extended the expiry time of its offer (the Offer) dated November 16, 2009, as amended, to purchase all of the issued and outstanding common shares (the Keystone Shares) in the capital of Keystone North America Inc. (Keystone). The expiry time of the Offer has been extended from 3:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on Friday, March 19, 2010 to 3:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on Friday, March 26, 2010.
