StoneMor Partners Drops $53.8 Million In Cash For SCI Properties
StoneMor Partners L.P. announced today that it has signed definitive agreements to purchase 9 funeral homes, 12 cemeteries and 2 crematories from Service Corporation International for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $53.8 million in cash. The properties are located in Central Florida, North Carolina, Southeastern Pennsylvania and Virginia, and include approximately 1,140 acres of land, 236 of which are undeveloped. This transaction is subject to closing conditions, including the FTC approval of StoneMor’s acquisition of certain of these properties.
“We’re delighted to move to the next step of the process we previously announced when StoneMor was named the successful bidder for these properties,” said Larry Miller , President & CEO of StoneMor. “The addition of these cemeteries, funeral homes and crematories will facilitate our ongoing national expansion. These are very well run properties which should not require a great deal of up-front investment, but we believe that once we are up and running, in addition to being immediately accretive, we can further enhance the financial performance of these properties.”
The cemeteries included in the transaction perform approximately 3,500 interments per year and the funeral homes perform approximately 1,900 annual calls. The cemetery inventories include more than 76,000 developed, unsold spaces, more than 2,400 unsold lawn crypts, 4,200 constructed unsold mausoleum crypts and 4,400 constructed unsold niches. Upon completion of the acquisition, StoneMor will receive control of cemetery merchandise trust funds with a current value of approximately $18.9 million and perpetual care trusts of approximately $15.3 million. StoneMor will assume merchandise liabilities of approximately $10.5 million and accounts receivable in the amount of $5.7 million.
