Service Corporation International (SCI) is North America's leading provider of deathcare products and services. We have more than 22,000 dedicated employees who provide the finest funeral, cremation, and cemetery services to hundreds of thousands of families each year. Operating from a network of more than 2,000 funeral homes and cemeteries, the people of SCI assist families with compassion and guidance at difficult times, helping them celebrate the significance of lives that have been lived, and preserving memories that transcend generations, with dignity and honor.

Strengthening and Modernization

As it refined its network and introduced name brand funeral services in the early years of the new century, the Company also made significant improvements to its financial condition and infrastructure. Between 2002 and 2006, SCI reduced its net debt(total debt minus cash) by more than $1.0 billion, increased operating cash flow, and simplified its field management organization to enhance efficiency, performance, and accountability. It also improved business and sales processes, tightened internal controls, strengthened corporate governance standards, and established the finest training and development system in its industry. For its shareholders, SCI returned value through more than $335 million in share repurchases, and it resumed payment of a regular quarterly dividend in early 2005, the first since 1999. By the beginning of 2006, SCI was a noticeably different organization than that of five years earlier. The Company was operating at a profit, with robust cash flows and resources and the most efficient infrastructure in its history. It was from this new position of strength that SCI took a giant step toward future success by acquiring its biggest competitor, Alderwoods Group, in November 2006. As SCI looks to the future, the addition of more than 600 funeral homes and cemeteries in the Alderwoods network provide an expanded geographic footprint that will enable SCI to serve families in 46 states, eight Canadian provinces, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

A National Brand of Service

As previously mentioned, during 2000 the Company introduced Dignity Memorial®, its national corporate brand name. This is the first attempt to brand on a national basis in the funeral service industry. In an effort to increase the population coverage of the branded network, the Company has also invited independently owned funeral providers to join the network in a franchise relationship. By measuring population bases within certain geographical areas surrounding our network of owned and third party franchise relationships, we estimate that we can serve approximately 74% of the total U.S. population - a distinguishing characteristic that separates us from others in this industry and gives us a significant competitive advantage.

Dignity Memorial represents the consistently high standard of service that families will find throughout the SCI network. It stands for simplicity and value in the selection of services and products. Benefits are offered through Dignity Memorial that cannot be found with any other company including:

• National portability of pre-need funeral arrangements
• A 24-Hour Compassion Helpline(SM)
• Discounted airfares
• Estate planning assistance
• Legal services membership
• The security of a 100-percent service guarantee
• The convenience of finding Dignity Memorial provider locations and information online
• Pricing and memorialization offerings that have been developed with the assistance of families that SCI has served in the past.

To reinforce its high standard of service, SCI has a third party company mail surveys to families three weeks after a funeral has been conducted for them. Nearly 50 percent of families respond, and more than 98 percent of them indicate their willingness to recommend SCI services to others.
