Item 5.02.

DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF
DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY
ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS.
On December 7, 2016, Service Corporation International (SCI or
Company) entered new employment agreements with its named executive
officers. The names of the executive officers and the material
terms of their old employment agreements are summarized in SCI’s
proxy statement dated March 31, 2016 under Executive Employment
Agreements, which is incorporated by reference herein. The new
employment agreements have substantially the same terms as are
contained in the old employment agreements with the following
changes.
The new employment agreements have terms expiring December
31, 2017.
The new employment agreements require each executive to
execute a release as a condition to the Companys payment of
benefits related to termination of employment.
The new employment agreements provide health coverage to the
executive or his family in connection with termination of
employment related to death or disability.
New provisions state that the agreements do not limit an
executives right to file a charge or provide information,
including trade secrets in certain circumstances, with or
participate in an investigation conducted by a federal, state
or local government agency
The definition of Change of Control has been changed such
that certain reorganizations, mergers or consolidations or
sales of substantially all assets are defined to be a change
of control at the consummation of the transaction (whereas
the old employment agreements required only shareholders
approval regardless of whether or not the transaction was
consummated).
In connection with the change noted in the preceding
paragraph, the period during which Change of Control payments
are triggered has been extended to include the sixty days
prior to the date of the Change of Control.
In the event an executive would be entitled to receive an
excess parachute payment (in connection with a Change of
Control) which could be subject to an excise tax on the
executive, such payment will be reduced if the reduction
would improve the executives benefit on an after-tax basis.
