Under SCI’s proposal, which was approved by the FTC following a public comment period, the company will sell the properties to Foundation Partners Group, LLC., a new company formed by the private equity firm Sterling Partners and former founders and executives of Keystone. The properties are located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, New York, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington State. A complete list of the properties can be found in SCI’s petition to the FTC seeking approval of the sales, which is available on the FTC’s website and as a link to this press release.

Ducore, Bureau of Competition, 202-326-2526. See press release dated March 26, 2010, at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2010/03/keystone.shtm.)
