Houston – The question was never if Service Corporation International was going to acquire Stewart Enterprises, but when. Five years after a failed attempt by SCI to acquire the number-two funeral service provider, the number-one provider has agreed to acquire Stewart Enterprises in a $1.4 billion transaction.
Under the terms of the deal, SCI will acquire Stewart Enterprises in an all-cash merger with a total enterprise value of approximately $1.4 billion. Holders of Stewart’s Class A and Class B common stock will receive $13.25 in cash for each share of common stock they hold. The per-share consideration represents an approximate premium of 48 percent above the volume weighted average closing price of $8.97 per share for the 30 calendar days ending May 23, 2013.
Mourning Cross, elegant Bereavement Pins in both cross and circle motifs, are worn to distinguish the immediate family of the departed, enhance the funeral experience and offer opportunity to “tell the story”. The pins were inspired from the experience of an Irish mother along with her three daughters during the loss of their beloved husband and father. When attending funerals and wakes, acquaintances wish to pay their respects to the family, but often face the challenge of identifying family members among those in attendance. In keeping with long-past tradition of black armbands worn by families, the designs offer contemporary identification of those grieving with either the cross or non-denominational circle.
