Service Corporation International’s management presented at Bank of America Merrill Lynch Leveraged Finance Conference on Tuesday. There were some interesting numbers in the transcript of the presentation. We included a snippet below.

SCI stated:

One of the unique things about the industry is that we market to consumers on a pre-need basis where those consumers are selected cemetery property and are select in funeral and cemetery merchandised and services on a pre-need basis is a contractual relationship that’s actually funded by the consumer as well. That creates a tremendous situation for us where we have a backlog of over $7.5 billion of future revenues that again are in the process of being funded with cash or are funded with cash or are supported by a life insurance policy, where the proceeds of that policy comes to the funeral home at the time of need.

SCI currently owns about 13% of the market share and after the purchase of Stewart Enterprises this will increase to 15% and add over $500 million in annual revenue.

If you own SCI stock then you should be excited for this deal to go through.
