Park Lawn adds to Sioux City locations
It was back in March 2023 when Funeral Director Daily published this article about Park Lawn Corporation (PLC) acquiring the Meyer Brothers Funeral Homes’ five locations in the state-line cities of Sioux City, Iowa, and South Sioux City, Nebraska. According to a press release from Park Lawn Corporation the acquisition added five stand-alone businesses and about 1,116 death calls per year to the PLC operations at that time.
Last week we received notice that Park Lawn Corporation will be adding to their operational density in that area when it was announced in this press release that PLC had reached an agreement to acquire the Christy-Smith Funeral Home operations of Sioux City, Iowa. Christy-Smith’s two stand-alone funeral homes will add approximately 217 death calls to the area number for Park Lawn Corporation properties according to that press release.
That would make the 2023 acquisitional total in the greater Sioux City, Iowa, area for Park Lawn Corporation 7 stand-alone funeral homes and about 1,333 death calls.
Here’s what Park Lawn Corporation CEO J. Bradley Green had to say in the press release, ” We are excited for the opportunity to further expand our operating position in the Sioux City metropolitan area through the strategic acquisition of Christy-Smith. These businesses will complement our recent Meyer Brothers acquisition and further our operational synergies in the market. We look forward to welcoming the Christy-Smith team into the Park Lawn family.”
PLC also stated in the press release that “the Christy-Smith acquisition is expected to add approximately US$437,391 in Adjusted EBITDA annually.”
