Presentation

Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Fourth Quarter 2011 Service Corporation International Earnings Conference Call. My name is Diana and I’ll be the Operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. Later, we will conduct a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instruction) As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes.

I would now like to turn the conference over to your host for today, the SCI Management. Please proceed.

Debbie Young

Good morning. This is Debbie Young, Director of Investor Relations for SCI. Thanks for joining us today. As usual, we’ll start with some prepared remarks from management and then we’ll take some of your questions. But first, let me go through the Safe Harbor language.

In our comments today, we will make statements that are not historical facts and are forward-looking. These statements are based on assumptions that we believe are reasonable. However, there are many important factors that could cause our actual results in the future to differ materially from these forward-looking statements. For more information related to these statements and other risk factors, please review our filings with the SEC that are available on our website.
