Earnings from continuing operations excluding special items, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding special items, and net cash provided by operating activities excluding special items are non-GAAP financial measures. These items are also referred to as "adjusted earnings per share" and "adjusted cash flow". A reconciliation from net income attributable to common stockholders, diluted earnings per share, and net cash provided by operating activities computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) can be found later in this press release under the headings "Cash Flow and Capital Spending" and "Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

Quarterly Highlights:

  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.24 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $0.23 in the third quarter of 2015. The third quarter of 2016 included system transition costs and higher income tax rates related to the divestitures of businesses. Diluted earnings per share excluding special items were $0.26 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $0.23 in the third quarter of 2015. The increase in diluted earnings per share excluding special items was driven by solid operating results bolstered by effective operating expense management, lower interest expense, and fewer shares outstanding resulting from our ongoing share repurchase program.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $133.0 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $114.1 million in the third quarter of 2015. Excess tax benefits from share-based awards reduced cash provided by operating activities in both periods. The third quarter of 2015 was also negatively impacted by premiums paid on early extinguishment of debt. Net cash provided by operating activities excluding special items was $143.0 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $124.9 million in the prior year quarter. These increases were primarily due to increased earnings and favorable working capital initiatives.
  • During the third quarter, we returned $136.7 million to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends and deployed $14.3 million of capital to accretive acquisitions.

Tom Ryan, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the third quarter of 2016:

"We are pleased to report double-digit percentage growth in both adjusted earnings per share and adjusted operating cash flow during the quarter. Growth in cemetery revenue and effectively managing back office overhead expenses coupled with reduced interest expense and shares outstanding were the primary drivers of our double-digit growth in the quarter. While funeral services performed were sluggish initially against our expectations, they improved in the back half of the quarter. We expect this momentum to continue in the fourth quarter of 2016 and we are reiterating our full year 2016 adjusted earnings per share and operating cash flow guidance. Our results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team, and I thank all 24,000 team members for their focus on delivering extraordinary service to our client families. We believe our long-term value creation plan is on track as we grow our revenues by remaining relevant with the consumer, drive future market share by growing our preneed sales, continue to leverage our scale, and deploy capital to enhance shareholder value."

(1)

Atneed revenue represents merchandise and services sold and delivered or performed once death has occurred.



(2)

Funeral home matured preneed revenue represents merchandise and services sold on a preneed contract through one of our funeral homes and delivered or performed once death has occurred.



(3)

Core revenue represents the sum of merchandise and services sold on an atneed contract or sold by one of our funeral homes on a preneed contract and delivered or performed once death has occurred.



(4)

Non-funeral home matured preneed revenue represents services sold on a preneed contract through one of our non-funeral home sales channels (e.g. SCI Direct) and performed once death has occurred.



(5)

Recognized preneed revenue represents merchandise and travel protection sold on a preneed contract and delivered before death has occurred.



(6)

Other revenue primarily comprises general agency revenue, which is commissions we receive from third-party insurance companies for life insurance policies sold to preneed customers for the purpose of funding preneed arrangements.

 

  • Total comparable funeral revenue decreased by $6.9 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to the same period of 2015. A decline in core and general agency revenue was partially offset by growth in recognized preneed revenue.
  • The $3.7 million core revenue decrease was primarily a result of a 2.3% decline in core funeral services performed. Core average revenue per service increased 1.4% during the third quarter of 2016. Organic sales average growth of 2.1% was somewhat offset by a 70 basis point increase in core cremation mix to 47.5%.
  • General agency revenue was down 9.5% compared to the prior year third quarter, partially from a decline in preneed insurance sales production due to a temporary mix change between trust and insurance production as well as the decision to cease production at the Catholic mortuaries in the Los Angeles Archdiocese.
  • Recognized preneed revenue increased $1.9 million, primarily driven by an increase in both the number of contracts sold through our non-funeral home sales channel and the average price per contract.
  • Comparable funeral gross profit decreased $3.2 million to $75.1 million in the current quarter. The impact of the decline in higher margin core revenue due to lower funeral services performed and a decline in general agency revenue was partially offset by lower operating expenses and increases in recognized preneed revenue from our non-funeral home channel.
  • Comparable preneed funeral sales production increased $1.6 million, or 0.8%, in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 2015, primarily due to a 1.0% increase in average price per contracts sold. In the first nine months of 2016, preneed funeral sales production grew $29.7 million or 4.9%.  

Comparable Cemetery Results

The table below details comparable cemetery results of operations ("same store") for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015. We consider comparable operations to be those owned for the entire period beginning January 1, 2015 and ending September 30, 2016.

(5)

Represents the ratio of current period core revenue recognition stated as a percentage of current period sales production.

 

  • Comparable cemetery revenue grew $10.9 million, or 4.1%, in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 2015, led by an increase in recognized preneed revenue of $8.5 million, or 5.3%.
  • Comparable preneed cemetery sales production increased $9.1 million, or 5.1%, quarter over quarter. The growth over the prior year quarter is partially due to increased large sales activity.
  • Comparable cemetery gross profit increased $1.9 million and the gross margin percentage was 23.7%. The gross profit increase was driven primarily by growth in recognized preneed revenue partially offset by increases in cemetery administrative and maintenance costs.

Other Financial Results

  • General and administrative expenses decreased $1.0 million to $26.9 million in the third quarter of 2016. The current quarter includes an increase of $2.2 million in system integration costs related to the 2016 implementation of a new general ledger system. Excluding this $2.2 million, general and administrative expenses decreased $3.2 million compared to prior year quarter as we effectively managed our back office overhead expenses.
  • Interest expense decreased $4.4 million to $39.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 as we benefited from the debt refinancings over the past year by obtaining lower interest rates on our Senior Notes and increasing our proportion of lower variable rate debt.

Cash Flow and Capital Spending

Set forth below is a reconciliation of our reported net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with GAAP to net cash provided by operating activities excluding special items (or sometimes referred to as adjusted operating cash flow). We do not intend for this information to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Net cash provided by operating activities excluding special items was $143.0 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $124.9 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to the increase in earnings and favorable working capital initiatives. Cash flow benefited from a $7.9 million temporary timing difference in payroll funding that was largely offset by an expected increase in cash taxes in the third quarter of $7.8 million.

OUTLOOK FOR 2016

Our outlook for potential earnings and operating cash flow for the full year 2016 remains unchanged and is shown below. Our outlook for capital improvements at existing facilities and development of cemetery property has slightly increased from $150 million to $160 million expected for the full year of 2016.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding special items and Net cash provided by operating activities excluding special items are non-GAAP financial measures. We normally reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures from diluted earnings per share and net cash provided by operating activities; however, diluted earnings per share and net cash provided by operating activities calculated in accordance with GAAP are not currently accessible on a forward-looking basis. Our outlook for 2016 excludes the following because this information is not currently available for 2016: Gains or losses associated with asset divestitures, gains or losses associated with the early extinguishment of debt, potential tax reserve adjustments and IRS settlement payments, acquisition and integration costs, system implementation and transition costs, and potential costs associated with settlements of litigation or the recognition of receivables for insurance recoveries associated with litigation. The foregoing items, especially gains or losses associated with asset divestitures and potential tax reserve adjustments, could materially impact our forward-looking diluted EPS and/or our net cash provided by operating activities calculated in accordance with GAAP, consistent with the historical disclosures found in this press release under the headings "Cash Flow and Capital Spending" and "Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Earnings from continuing operations excluding special items and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding special items shown above are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide a consistent basis for comparison between quarters and better reflect the performance of our core operations, as they are not influenced by certain income or expense items not affecting continuing operations. We also believe these measures help facilitate comparisons to our competitors' operating results.

Set forth below is a reconciliation of our reported net income attributable to common stockholders to earnings from continuing operations excluding special items and our GAAP diluted earnings per share to diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding special items. We do not intend for this information to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in this press release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements made in reliance on the "safe harbor" protections provided under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements may be accompanied by words such as "believe," "estimate," "project," "expect," "anticipate," or "predict," that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. These statements are based on assumptions that we believe are reasonable; however, many important factors could cause our actual results in the future to differ materially from the forward-looking statements made herein and in any other documents or oral presentations made by us, or on our behalf. Important factors, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include, among others, the following:

  • Our affiliated funeral and cemetery trust funds own investments in equity securities, fixed income securities, and mutual funds, which are affected by market conditions that are beyond our control.
  • We may be required to replenish our affiliated funeral and cemetery trust funds in order to meet minimum funding requirements, which would have a negative effect on our earnings and cash flow.
  • Our ability to execute our strategic plan depends on many factors, some of which are beyond our control.
  • Our credit agreements contain covenants that may prevent us from engaging in certain transactions.
  • If we lost the ability to use surety bonding to support our preneed funeral and preneed cemetery activities, we may be required to make material cash payments to fund certain trust funds.
  • The funeral and cemetery industry is competitive.
  • Increasing death benefits related to preneed contracts funded through life insurance contracts may not cover future increases in the cost of providing a price-guaranteed service.
  • The financial condition of third-party insurance companies that fund our preneed funeral contracts may impact our future revenue.
  • Unfavorable results of litigation could have a material adverse impact on our financial statements.
  • Unfavorable publicity could affect our reputation and business.
  • If the number of deaths in our markets declines, our cash flows and revenue may decrease.
  • If we are not able to respond effectively to changing consumer preferences, our market share, revenue, and profitability could decrease.
  • The continuing upward trend in the number of cremations performed in North America could result in lower revenue and gross profit.
  • Our funeral home and cemetery businesses are high fixed-cost businesses.
  • Regulation and compliance could have a material adverse impact on our financial results.
  • Cemetery burial practice legal claims could have a material adverse impact on our financial results.
  • We use a combination of insurance, self-insurance and large deductibles in managing our exposure to certain inherent risks, as such, we could be exposed to unexpected costs that could negatively affect our financial performance.
  • A number of years elapse before particular tax matters, for which we have established accruals, are audited and finally resolved.
  • Declines in overall economic conditions beyond our control could reduce future potential earnings and cash flows and could result in future impairments to goodwill and/or other intangible assets.
  • Any failure to maintain the security of the information relating to our customers, their loved ones, our associates, and our vendors could damage our reputation, could cause us to incur substantial additional costs and to become subject to litigation, and could adversely affect our operating results.
  • Our Canadian business exposes us to operational, economic, and currency risks.
  • Our level of indebtedness could adversely affect our ability to raise additional capital to fund our operations, limit our ability to react to changes in the economy or our industry, and may prevent us from fulfilling our obligations under our indebtedness.
  • Failure to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting could adversely affect our results of operations, investor confidence, and our stock price.
