Carriage Services Announces First Quarter Results

Conference call on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. Central Time
HOUSTON – APRIL 27, 2022 – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Carriage Services, Inc. (NYSE: CSV): today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Record Quarterly Revenue of $98.2 million, GAAP Diluted EPS of $1.00 and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $0.92;
Invested $168.5 million since May 13, 2021 to repurchase 3.4 million shares (19% of outstanding) at $49.60 per share;
Capital Allocation now focused on internal growth (mostly cemetery property development) and high quality acquisitions;
Updated Rolling Four Quarter Outlook and Three Year Roughly Right Ranges Performance Scenario Through 2024;
Discretionary Trust Fund Positive Total Return of 4.3%; and
Management’s Opinion of Intrinsic Value Roughly Right Range remains at $70 to $80 per share.

Mel Payne, Chairman and CEO, stated, “I highly recommend that anyone interested in Carriage for any reason read my most recent 2021 Shareholder Letter, co-written by the three other members of our Strategic Vision and Principles Group (SVPG), Carlos Quezada, Ben Brink and Steve Metzger, together with our Proxy Statement for our Annual Meeting of stockholders on May 17, 2022. In particular, you hopefully will find unique value and maybe a little surprise wisdom in my new two page beginning “Introduction To Shareholder Letter” and six page ending (Pages 41-46), concluding with the customary joint letter from me and Bryan Leibman (Lead Director) to all shareholders on the first page of our Proxy Statement, after which there are 2⅓ pages with the heading “P.S. A Personal Note From Mel Payne.”
After writing extensively and comprehensively about the High Performance Transformation of Carriage since the end of 2018 during a once in a lifetime COVID-19 Pandemic that has become endemic but hopefully manageable, we will no longer include in each quarterly release as much highly detailed and transparent performance data along with narrative interpretation by each member of SVPG. However, we will be very active in our “in-person” investor relations program in the future with investors both new and old to the Carriage story, in addition to Zoom one-on-one calls during virtual conferences that were necessitated over the last two years and undoubtedly have been highly productive and efficient and therefore will be selectively continued.
We believe that Carriage is entering a long term “shareholder value creation sweet spot” from outstanding execution of our three core models and savvy yet flexible capital allocation with the next few years particularly focused on high quality acquisitions. A more normalized post-pandemic crisis industry landscape is offering up both quantity and quality acquisition candidates in new strategic markets that we haven’t experienced since the end of 2019, which was itself unique in our over thirty-year history of consolidation of the funeral and cemetery industries.

                            1




The First Quarter of 2022 is the beginning of the Third Five Year Timeframe of our Good To Great Journey that never ends, which I first began to write about in our first quarter 2012 earnings release. I don’t remember anything about our performance in that quarter ten years ago, or much about any one of the thirty-nine quarters since then, but I remember well that our share price closed at $5.60 per share at year-end 2011 and $64.44 at year-end 2021. Over the last ten years ending 2021, our Good To Great Journey has rewarded our “long term shareholders” with a Total Return of 1,268% including dividends, and a share price CAGR including dividends of 28.9%.
When Carlos Quezada joined Carriage on June 26, 2020, he immediately coined the phrase, “It’s A Great Time To Be At Carriage.” EVERYONE in any Carriage leadership role knows Carlos nailed the emotional connection between all of us to our Being The Best High Performance Culture, so the mantra has become, “Glad To Be Here!®” Which is why we all have AN UNBREAKABLE UNION OF BELIEF that the second half of Carlos’ coined phrase is the exciting half and depicted as the Carriage “Sistine Chapel” Flywheel on the front cover of our 2021 Shareholder Letter/Annual Report with the theme: “THE BEST IS YET TO COME!”, concluded Mr. Payne.
Carlos Quezada, President and Chief Operating Officer stated, “As Mel mentioned on page one of this release, 2022 is the beginning of a new five year Good To Great Journey. While we have had record performance since the High Performance transformation that began in 2018, we have now turned the page to focus on executing our strategy to continue building momentum to accelerate our High Performance Flywheel speed for the next five years ending 2026.
We started our new five-year timeframe with a record first-quarter performance even after a very high comparable performance last year influenced by the peak of COVID-19 cases in January of 2021. Total Revenue was $98.2 million, an increase of $1.5 million or 1.6%, driven entirely by a $3.3 million or 4.9% increase in our funeral home portfolio. While our Total Field EBITDA declined $0.3 million to $45.5 million, the Field EBITDA Margin declined 110 basis points to 46.3%, and our Adjusted EBITDA declined by $2.2 million to $32.5 million reducing our Adjusted EBITDA Margin by 280 basis points to 33.1%. The good news in the first quarter against last year’s difficult COVID-19 lift performance is that our Adjusted Diluted EPS was $0.92 (up $0.11 or 13.6%), and GAAP Diluted EPS was $1.00 (up $0.29 or 40.8%) a function of a 1.8 million lower GAAP diluted share count and 445 basis points lower tax rate of 26.55%.

Mr. Quezada continued, “We report our performance results publicly using the same highly transparent Non-GAAP “Trend Reports” that we use internally and which have been explained in previous shareholder letters, including Five Quarter Trend Reports that reflect short term trends in our core operating, financial and overhead sectors over time. The next page is our Five Quarter Operating, and Financial Trend Report followed by commentary on the first quarter of 2022”.
We report acquisitions for both funeral homes and cemeteries separately for five years to highlight their High Performance nature after integration into Carriage Services Standards Operating Model. Upon completion of the fifth year, the acquired business transfers to same store reporting. We have updated our Five Quarter Operating and Financial Trend Report tables to reflect five businesses that recently moved into same store from acquisition.

CEMETERY SEGMENT
We ended the quarter on our Cemetery Same Store Revenue with $14.2 million, which decreased by $0.4 million or 2.6%. Cemetery Same Store EBITDA was $5.3 million, a decrease of $0.4 million or 7.1%, and Cemetery Same Store Margin was 37.2%, a reduction of 180 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2021. For our Cemetery Acquisition Revenue in the first quarter of 2022, we ended at $6.3 million, a decrease of $0.7 million or 9.8%. Cemetery Acquisition EBITDA was $3.3 million, a decrease of $0.8 million or 19.6%. And Cemetery Acquisition EBITDA Margin was 52.4%, a reduction of 640 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2021. While we have very high margins in our cemetery acquisition portfolio, the main reason for this variance was found at Fairfax Memorial Park in Fairfax, Virginia, where we had atypical group and larger sales. We are confident that as we continue to develop cemetery inventory, this type of sales will become consistent over time.
We are excited to announce that Elizabeth Perez-Montes joined Carriage on March 21, 2022 and will be taking over Shane Pudenz’ previous responsibility prior to his promotion as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Elizabeth as our new Director of Sales Support will be supporting our preneed cemetery sales teams to achieve sustainable High Performance. Welcome to the CAREdge Team Elizabeth.

OPERATIONS UPDATE
We had our first ever CAREdge Forum on March 14th through March 17th of 2022 in Houston, TX; with the theme of: UNBREAKABLE. Over 150 of our Managing Partners and Houston Support Center influencers immersed themselves in the transformation of Carriage’s Service and Guest Experience Standard in our Funeral Standards Operating Model weighted at 10%.
The forum had three goals. Number one was to inspire High Performance in every attendee through John “Gucci” Foley’s message on execution excellence and a Glad To Be Here® Attitude. John is a former lead solo pilot of the Blue Angels, a top rated Keynote Speaker, ‘Gratitude Guru’ and expert in the “how” of high performance teams. Number two was to have all of our leaders experience first-class service excellence firsthand and become enthused by the worldwide recognized service standards and excellence of the Ritz Carlton hotels imparted by the Ritz Carlton Leadership Center. Number three was to emphasize Carriage High Performance Culture and our unique “UNBREAKABLE UNION OF BELIEF,” which was evident with everyone and in every moment.
The CAREdge Forum was a success when measured by the outstanding feedback we have received from the Managing Partners, who went back very inspired, highly motivated, and totally engaged in delivering a Service and Guest Experience second to none in each of their businesses. This will ultimately lead to additional market share gains and higher three-year compounded revenue, which are two of the High Performance Standards that combined have a weighting of up to 50% of 100% in our Funeral Standards Operating Model.
Our new marketing department led by Alfred White is up and running at full speed. Since joining Carriage on January 2, 2022, Alfred has been able to put together an entire team of talented marketing specialists who are now supporting Managing Partners across the nation with their marketing needs including digital marketing, online presence, SEO, graphic design, content management, content library, and social media.
Alfred and his team are poised to deliver exciting products and services that will catapult our opportunities and new possibilities as we continue to gain market share and build an excellent reputation within Carriage’s portfolio of businesses.

ROB FRANCH JOINS CARRIAGE AS NEW CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER
We are very excited to announce that Rob Franch, our new Chief Information Officer, joined Carriage on April 1, 2022. Before joining Carriage, he served as the Chief Technology Officer for Cushman & Wakefield from 2014 to 2022, where he led the application, infrastructure, and collaboration delivery to over 48,000 colleagues across 60 countries. He has also held senior leadership roles for AON Corporation, Bank of America, and LaSalle Bank. Rob is a graduate of the University of Iowa.
As Carriage Services Chief Information Officer, Rob’s innovation and creative leadership style will enable our Managing Partners and their teams of field employees and our Houston Support Center to engage through the design of a customer-centric service chain that will wow our guest families. A snapshot of our five-year plan for transformative technology innovation is covered on page 22 of our 2021 shareholder letter. We welcome Rob and wish him extraordinary success!

FIVE REASONS WHY THE BEST IS YET TO COME
A lot is going on at Carriage, and our prospects for the future are higher than ever before. To share the excitement that we have about our future, I will give you these five reasons:
1) We will continue to develop our preneed cemetery sales teams across our portfolio of cemeteries with an emphasis on growing our sales force while selecting the Right Who salespeople, expanding their sales skills, and generating engagement that will deliver growth in new preneed property sales.
2) Our CAREdge forum inspired all of our Managing Partners who left with the tools needed to create a customer-centric culture of excellence that will generate organic growth in our funeral home portfolio for years to come (it’s not over, there is a lot more coming. Stay tuned for updates!).
3) Our digital marketing strategy has started to deliver results in the pilot businesses with an ambitious plan to replicate success through the collaboration and teamwork of our Managing Partners.
4) Our business development efforts are generating significant activity towards adding new businesses, new partnerships and new revenue for Carriage (Steve will elaborate on this point later in this release).
5) At Carriage, we are proud to say that we focus on people as the primary driver of our Carriage Services High Performance Culture. This focus is the fuel that lights our internal fire for the never-ending pursuit of our Mission and Vision of Being The Best operator, consolidator, and value creator company that happens to be in the death care industry.
These are just five of the many reasons for our passion for our “The Best Is Yet To Come” motto at Carriage. When paired with our one-year plan, five-year strategy, and 10-year Being The Best Vision of the future, we know why the beginning of the motto is: “It’s a Great Time To Be At Carriage,” concluded Mr. Quezada.

UPDATE ON GROWTH THROUGH ACQUISITION OUTLOOK
Steve Metzger, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel stated, “We have written extensively about our approach to growth through acquisition and, after two years of focusing our allocation of capital on paying down debt and opportunistic share repurchases of approximately 19% of the Company, we are now well positioned and laser focused on getting back to growth through acquisition. We previously shared our expectation that our conversations and work with owners to learn more about specific candidates that fit our strategic focus would result in the announcement of new businesses joining the Carriage Family during the second half of 2022. That forecast continues to be in line with the strong activity we are currently experiencing within our pipeline, much of it in new strategic markets with significant growth potential over the next 5-10 years.
In his book, The Outsiders, Will Thorndike described seven key traits shared by the standout executives he profiled in his book and noted, “With acquisitions, patience is a virtue…as is occasional boldness.” We knew that our patience, following some bold acquisitions in 2019 and 2020, would ultimately pay off as we did our homework and waited for those unique businesses that fit the Carriage profile to be ready to move forward with their succession plans. We take a similar approach to Berkshire Hathaway when we look at acquisitions. As Charlie Munger has pointed out, “Two-thirds of acquisitions don’t work. Ours work because we don’t try to do acquisitions – we wait for no-brainers.” We have also learned to wait for the “no brainers” and then dedicate the time to learn about the owners and what is important to them before we prepare a customized offer and post-acquisition plan based on those conversations.
As Mel mentioned, the level of activity involving high quality businesses is as strong as we have seen in more than two years. We believe our patience will begin to pay off, as we are now well positioned to partner with the best remaining independent funeral home and cemetery businesses at a time when more of the best businesses seem keenly aware of the succession plan and support benefits of Carriage’s unique High Performance Culture Framework.
As previously mentioned, we will have more details to share during the second half of the year. With that said, we are excited to announce that we recently signed a letter of intent with a fantastic business in a growing area of Florida, which we expect to close in the next 90 days. We are also working on several other potential deals in new strategic markets across the country with businesses that possess great history, unique owner vision, and exciting upside in the years to come.
As we have learned throughout our 30 year history, and the reason we do not project annual acquisition spend targets, you never know when the right businesses will be ready to move forward with a succession plan. While we remain patient and thoughtful in our approach, we will continue to build relationships with high quality candidates, do our homework and remain prepared for the “no brainers” when those businesses and owners are ready. We look forward to sharing more details regarding additions to the Carriage Family in the months to come,” concluded Mr. Metzger.

Ben Brink, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, “The above updated Roughly Right Ranges Scenario for the remainder of 2022, 2023 and 2024 includes capital allocation of 100% of our Adjusted Free Cash Flow towards primarily acquisitions followed by internal growth projects. Small updates to our Roughly Right Ranges Scenario for 2022 include a lower range for Adjusted Free Cash Flow with $78 to $82 million and a lower projected year end Diluted outstanding share count of 16 million due to continued execution of our share repurchase program in the first quarter.
We are updating our Rolling Four Quarter Outlook for operating and financial performance through the end of the first quarter 2023. Unlike our Three Year Roughly Right Ranges Scenario, our updated Rolling Four Quarter Outlook will only include capital allocation expectations for acquisitions that we currently have under letter of intent that are on track to close within the next 90 days. As Steve has previously mentioned in his comments, we currently have one acquisition under letter of intent and have included conservative projections of initial performance within the Rolling Four Quarter Outlook below:
Revenue: $380 - $390 million
Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA: $128 - $134 million
Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA Margin: 33.5% - 34.5%
Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share: $3.57 - $3.67
Adjusted Free Cash Flow: $82 - $86 million
Adjusted Free Cash Flow Margin: 21.5% - 22.5%
Our goal with the Rolling Four Quarter Outlook is to provide investors with the most up to date view of our performance over the next 12 months including our ability to execute on our Strategic Acquisition Model and the initial accretion from any acquisitions completed to our operating and financial performance.
                            10




CAPITAL ALLOCATION/SHARE REPURCHASE UPDATE
During the first quarter we invested $26 million to repurchase 490,000 of CSV shares at an average purchase price of $53.08. Since resuming our share repurchase program during the second quarter 2021, we have repurchased approximately 3.4 million shares at an average cost of $49.60. The 3.4 million shares repurchased is a 19% reduction of our shares outstanding since resuming repurchases and the average purchase price is an approximate 30% discount to the current low end of our Roughly Right Range of Intrinsic Value.
Considering the full impact of the 490,000 shares we repurchased in the first quarter, our basic shares outstanding are approximately 14.9 million and our diluted shares outstanding are approximately 16.0 million.
As we outlined in our 2021 Shareholder Letter, we intend to focus most of our capital allocation for the remainder of 2022 towards acquisitions of the best remaining independent funeral home and cemetery businesses while continuing to make investments across our portfolio in high return on invested capital growth projects. We intend to fund all of our anticipated capital allocation for the remainder of 2022 through internally generated Free Cash Flow which will in turn will allow us to maintain our Proforma Debt Leverage Ratio at or below 4.5x by year-end, compared to 4.7x at the end of the first quarter.

For the first quarter our Adjusted Free Cash Flow declined $14.8 million, and our Adjusted Free Cash Flow Margin declined 1550 basis points primarily due to $9 million of higher cash incentive compensation payments made in the first quarter that had previously been earned and accrued for, an increase in maintenance capital spending of approximately $1.5 million and $1.0 million of higher cash taxes in the quarter.
In our 2021 Shareholder Letter Steve detailed the increase in both our one year Being The Best, and five year Good To Great incentive programs based on the High Performance results achieved by our Managing Partners and their teams during the past year and five years. In particular, approximately $3 million of additional cash incentive compensation paid in the first quarter was related to our five year Good To Great award, earned by Managing Partners if they are able to grow their revenue at a compound annual growth rate at 1% or above for a full five years.
Last year was the tenth year that we have had the Good To Great incentive program and was by far our largest group of winners at thirty-four. The group of thirty-four Good To Great award winners had a compound annual growth rate of revenue of 5.4% from 2017-2021. The award is paid half in cash and half in appreciated Carriage shares (2021 was a proof of concept year) during the first quarter of the following year in which it was earned. This amount had been accrued for over the past five years and represented the largest amount of cash incentive payments in our history.
We expect Adjusted Free Cash Flow to be materially higher during the remainder of the year given the timing of the large incentive compensation cash outflows in the first quarter, normalized maintenance capital expenditures and lower cash interest payment on our 4.25% Senior Notes that is paid in the second quarter.

HY Bond Index(4.8)%10.0%
70/30 HY/S&P Bond(4.8)%11.9%
As we outlined in our 2021 Shareholder Letter, we believed we had positioned our Discretionary Trust Fund Portfolio for continued outperformance even in a market environment of high inflation, rising interest rates and, as it turned out, significant geopolitical turmoil with the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. For the quarter our Discretionary Trust Funds had a total positive return of 4.3% compared to a total negative return of 4.6% for the S&P 500. The 8.9% difference in our total return for the first quarter compared to the S&P 500 was driven by the performance of our equity portfolio with a positive return of 11.2%, which was offset slightly by a 3.9% decline in our fixed income portfolio. The decline in our fixed income portfolio was entirely due to the increase in interest rates and therefore higher yields and lower prices on our fixed income securities, not a decrease in underlying credit quality.
The 1580 basis point outperformance of our equity portfolio compared to the S&P 500 in the first quarter is a great example of Mel’s investment philosophy that:

“Great investment returns are produced by those fearless yet analytical souls who go where     everyone else has fled and find a fundamental reason to stay.”


                            12




During the depths of the Coronavirus Market Crisis and subsequently, we built our equity portfolio based on companies that have strong balance sheets, pay sustainable and growing dividends, and have opportunities to continue to grow their businesses over the long-term, while maintaining pricing power to offset the accelerating inflationary trends that we expected from the trillions of monetary and fiscal stimulus deployed repeatedly by the Fed and Congress during the COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis and recession.
We began selling our entire group of high-tech growth stocks (Apple, Advanced Micro Devices, Resmed, Align Technology, Salesforce, Netflix, Amazon, Google) at the end of 2019 and early 2020 to raise cash for redeployment into high dividend stocks during the subsequent market crash (got “a little” lucky on timing, but not on subsequent security purchases). We have eschewed since then the urge to chase the crowd back into high growth, large market capitalization technology stocks (FAANG+) and have never made investment decisions based on dogmatic yet confusing at best ESG investment style criteria.
In the first quarter and year-to-date some of our leading performers included refiners (Phillips 66, Valero), energy master limited partnerships (Enterprise Products, Williams Companies, Westlake Chemical Partners, Enviva Partners), miners (Freeport-McMoRan, Cleveland-Cliffs, both of which we recently fully exited 52 week highs to create $10 million of new cash and lock in large capital gains), large diversified chemical companies (Dow, LyondellBasel) and large pharmaceutical companies (Pfizer, AbbVie, Bristol Myers-Squibb). We also initiated new positions in high dividend energy infrastructure and natural gas companies (Enbridge, Magellan Midstream Partners, Chesapeake Energy, Cotera Energy).
Another large equity position that almost doubled in the first quarter was the offshore petroleum supply boat services company Tidewater. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic we joined with an activist industry specific investment group to make a large investment in Tidewater after it had emerged from bankruptcy with a strong balance sheet and “best in-class” assets. The investment thesis was that there would be a comeback in offshore oil and gas exploration activity and Tidewater would be a major beneficiary of more activity, improved pricing and further consolidation.
You might say we got lucky again, but betting against the groupthink of ESG Funds that had “fled energy pipeline and natural gas companies” to “stop climate change” is not exactly rocket science!!
The continued performance of our discretionary preneed trust fund portfolio will drive incremental growth of our reported Financial Revenue and Financial EBITDA through increased earnings on matured preneed contracts and recurring income earned through our cemetery perpetual care trusts. Since the execution of our Trust Fund Repositioning Strategy during the depths of the Coronavirus Market Crisis, we have recognized approximately $34 million of long-term capital gains in the portfolio and approximately doubled our recurring annual income earned in the portfolio to $17.7 million. We expect those totals to grow to approximately $40 million in long-term capital gains and over $18 million in recurring annual income over the course of this year. This embedded value within our discretionary preneed trust fund portfolio will be accretive to Carriage’s operating and financial results for the foreseeable future.
INTRINSIC VALUE
We are reaffirming our opinion of the Roughly Right Range of Intrinsic Value for CSV shares at $70 - $80 based on the free cash flow equity yield methodology we have previously used. We believe it continues to be appropriate to use a free cash flow equity yield range of 6.4% - 7.4%, based on our current estimated weighted average cost of capital of 6.4% and the weighted average cost of capital of 7.4% prior to the refinancing of our $400 million of senior notes at 4.25% in May 2021. Our updated mid-point for Adjusted Free Cash Flow in our Rolling Four Quarter Outlook is $84 million. Using the 6.4% - 7.4% free cash flow equity yield range would equal an equity market capitalization range of $1,135 million – $1,312 million. Dividing this range by our updated diluted shares outstanding of 16.0 million equals the Roughly Right Range of Intrinsic Value of $71 - $82, conservatively rounded to $70 - $80 per Carriage share,” concluded Mr. Brink.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release uses Non-GAAP financial measures to present the financial performance of the Company. Our Non-GAAP reporting provides a transparent framework of our operating and financial performance that reflects the earning power of the Company as an operating and consolidation platform.
Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe the Non-GAAP results are useful to investors to compare our results to previous periods, to provide insight into the underlying long-term performance trends in our business and to provide the opportunity to differentiate ourselves as the best consolidation platform in the industry against the performance of other funeral and cemetery companies.
Reconciliations of the Non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP measures are also provided in this press release.
The term “same store” refers to funeral homes and cemeteries acquired prior to January 1, 2018 and owned and operated for the entirety of each period being presented, excluding certain funeral home and cemetery businesses that we intend to divest.

Funeral Field EBITDA and Cemetery Field EBITDA
Our operations are reported in two business segments: Funeral Home Operations and Cemetery Operations. Our Field level results highlight trends in volumes, Revenue, Field EBITDA (the individual business’ cash earning power/locally controllable business profit) and Field EBITDA Margin (the individual business’ controllable profit margin).
Funeral Field EBITDA and Cemetery Field EBITDA are defined above. Funeral and Cemetery Operating Income is defined as Revenue less “Field costs and expenses” — a line item encompassing these areas of costs: i) Funeral and cemetery field costs, ii) Field depreciation and amortization expense, iii) Regional and unallocated funeral and cemetery costs, and iv) Gain/loss on divestitures, disposals and impairment charges. Funeral and cemetery field costs include cost of service, funeral and cemetery merchandise costs, operating expenses, labor and other related expenses incurred at the business level.
Regional and unallocated funeral and cemetery costs presented in our GAAP statement consist primarily of salaries and benefits of our Regional leadership, incentive compensation opportunity to our Field employees and other related costs for field infrastructure. These costs, while necessary to operate our businesses as currently operated within our unique, decentralized platform, are not controllable operating expenses at the Field level as the composition, structure and function of these costs are determined by executive leadership in the Houston Support Center. These costs are components of our overall overhead platform presented within Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA. We do not directly or indirectly “push down” any of these expenses to the individual business’ field level margins.
We believe that our “Regional and unallocated funeral and cemetery costs” are necessary to support our decentralized, high performance culture operating framework, and as such, are included in Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA, which more accurately reflects the cash earning power of the Company as an operating and consolidation platform.
Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA
Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA are defined above. Our Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA include adjustments for Special Items that we believe do not directly reflect our core operations and may not be indicative of our normal business operations.
How These Measures Are Useful
When used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, our Total Field EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA are supplemental measures of operating performance that we believe are useful measures to facilitate comparisons to our historical consolidated and business level performance and operating results.
We believe our presentation of Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA, a key metric used internally by our management, provides investors with a supplemental view of our operating performance that facilitates analysis and comparisons of our ongoing business operations because it excludes items that may not be indicative of our ongoing operating performance.
Limitations of the Usefulness of These Measures
Our Total Field EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation. Our presentation is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial
                            22




information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Funeral Field EBITDA, Cemetery Field EBITDA, Funeral Financial Field EBITDA, Cemetery Financial Field EBITDA, Ancillary EBITDA and Divested/Planned Divested EBITDA are not consolidated measures of profitability.
Funeral and Cemetery Field EBITDA excludes certain costs presented in our GAAP statement that we do not allocate to the individual business’ field level margins, as noted above. A reconciliation to Funeral and Cemetery Operating Income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is set forth below.
Consolidated EBITDA excludes certain items that we believe do not directly reflect our core operations and may not be indicative of our normal business operations. A reconciliation to Net Income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is set forth below.
Therefore, these measures may not provide a complete understanding of our performance and should be reviewed in conjunction with our GAAP financial measures. Carriage Services strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release includes the use of certain financial measures that are not GAAP measures. The Non-GAAP financial measures are presented for additional information and are reconciled to their most comparable GAAP measures, all of which are reflected in the tables below.

Earlier in this press release, we present the Three Year Roughly Right Ranges Performance Scenario which reflects management’s opinion on the performance of the portfolio of existing businesses, including performance of existing trusts, and excludes size and timing of acquisitions. This Performance Scenario is not intended to be management estimates or forecasts of our future performance, as we believe precise estimates will be precisely wrong all the time. The following reconciliations are presented within the ranges in this Performance Scenario.
