IN BRIEF Funeral homes combining

Service Corp. International plans to buy Stewart Enterprises Inc. in a cash deal valued at about $1.13 billion that combines the two largest funeral home and cemetery operators in the United States. Houston-based Service Corp. said Wednesday it will pay $13.25 for each share of Stewart, which is based in Jefferson, La. That’s a 36 percent premium over Stewart’s closing price on Tuesday. Service Corp. said the combined company will operate 1,653 funeral homes and 515 cemeteries in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Service Corp. currently runs 1,437 funeral homes and 374 cemeteries. Spokeswoman Lisa Marshall said that amounts to about a 13 percent market share in a highly fragmented industry.

Exxon Mobil CEO defends oil

The CEO of Exxon Mobil Corp. says there’s no quick replacement for oil, and sharply cutting oil’s use to reduce greenhouse gas emissions would make it harder to lift 2 billion people out of poverty. “What good is it to save the planet if humanity suffers?” CEO Rex Tillerson said at the oil giant’s annual meeting Wednesday. Tillerson jousted with environmental activists who proposed that the company set goals to reduce emissions from its products and operations. Shareholders sided with the company and voted nearly 3-to-1 to reject the proposal. By a 4-to-1 ratio, shareholders also defeated a resolution to explicitly ban discrimination against gays. The Exxon board had argued that the company already banned discrimination of any type and didn’t need to add language regarding gays.

Local unemployment drops three-tenths of a percent By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

Jobless rates

As the temperatures climb in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the local unemployment rate has continued to dip. Coming off a March that saw the local rate drop two-tenths of a percentage point, April was even better, dropping another threetenths of a percent to settle at 9.4 percent. For the 37th consecutive month, the rate was still the highest of the state’s 14 metropolitan statistical areas (MSA). The report, released Wednesday by the state Department of Labor and Industry, showed there were actually 100 fewer people working in the tri-county region that

makes up the MSA in April than in March; however, the number of people listed as unemployed but searching for jobs had dropped by 700.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre was one of four MSAs to register a drop in the number of employees from month-to-month, joining Erie, Johnstown and State College. The MSA incorporates Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wyoming counties. Most over-the-month changes were modest. Mining, logging and construction, and professional and business services all experienced seasonal increases. Leisure and hospitality experienced the largest gain adding 1,100 to payrolls. Health care and social assistance saw the largest decline over the month, down 600 employees. Over the year, transportation, warehousing and utili-

ties, as well as professional and business services, performed well. Durable goods manufacturing, educational services, and healthcare and social assistance saw the largest declines. Anthony Liuzzo, director of the master of business administration program at Wilkes University, classified the report as “slightly positive” though “humdrum” but added that overall it continues the “slow but steady trend” toward getting better. “Stability is good,” Liuzzo said, saying that the ultimate goal should be to get back into the 5 to 6 percent unemployment rate range that the region had pre-recession. Though those days, he noted, “aren’t

US banks report record earnings of $40.3B for Q1 By MARCY GORDON AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON — U.S. banks earned more from January through March than during any quarter on record, buoyed by greater income from fees and fewer losses from bad loans. The banking industry earned $40.3 billion in the first quarter, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said Wednesday. That’s the highest ever for a single quarter and up 15.8 percent from the first quarter of 2012, when the industry’s profits were $34.8 billion. Record profits show banks have come a long way from the 2008 financial crisis. But the report offered a reminder that the industry is still struggling to help the broader economy recover from the Great Recession. Only about half of U.S. banks reported improved earnings from a year earlier, the lowest proportion since 2009. That shows the industry’s growth is being driven by a narrower group of the nation’s largest banks. Those banks include Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co. Most of them have recovered with help from federal bailout money and record-low borrowing rates. Bank lending declined from the October-December quarter, although that followed several quarters of increases. And bank profits from interest charged fell 2.2 percent to $104 billion. The industry’s average interest income as a percentage of total loans on its books fell from 3.35 percent to 3.27 percent. That’s the lowest portion of total loans in nearly seven years. That has forced banks to see more revenue from fees, despite complaints from customers and consumer advocates.

Joblessness down in US cities

Unemployment rates fell in almost all large U.S. cities in April, helped by stronger hiring. The gains show the job market is improving throughout the country. The Labor Department said Wednesday that unemployment rates declined in 344 of the 372 largest metro areas. Rates rose in only 17 cities and were unchanged in 11. The U.S. unemployment rate dropped in April to a four-year low of 7.5 percent, down from 7.6 percent in March. Employers have added an average of 208,000 jobs each month in the past six months. That’s up from just 138,000 in the previous six. Yuma, Ariz. had the nation’s highest rate, at 30.3 percent, followed by El Centro, Calif., with 24 percent. Both cities have long had the highest rates in the country. They are adjacent and have heavy populations of migrant farm workers.

going to be here for a while.” The region’s rate drop mirrored Pennsylvania’s rate decrease of three-tenths of a point. The state’s unemployment rate in April was 7.6 percent, while the United States’ rate was at 7.5 percent, down one-tenth of a point over the month. Over the past year, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre rate increased two-tenths of a point, Pennsylvania’s rate decreased two-tenths, and the U.S. rate was down six-tenths of a point. On the county level, the unemployment rate rose to 8.8 percent in Lackawanna County, stayed at 9.4 percent in Wyoming County and dipped to 9.5 percent in Luzerne County.

Both companies’ boards have unanimously approved the transaction, which still needs approval from Smithfield’s shareholders. The transaction may also be subject to review by the U.S.’s Committee on Foreign Investment, which evaluates the potential national security effects of transactions. The process typically includes a 30-day initial review, followed by a 45-day investigation before making a recommendation to the president. Chinese investment in the U.S. is still comparatively low but has risen sharply in recent years. China has accused the U.S. of discriminating against its companies, although analysts say American firms face bigger obstructions investing in China. The companies put the deal’s total value at about $7.1 billion, including debt. Smithfield Foods has about

138.8 million outstanding shares, according to FactSet. Smithfield’s stock will no longer be publicly traded once the deal closes. Its shares surged $6.50, or 25 percent, to $32.47 in midday trading Wednesday. Shuanghui has 13 facilities that produce more than 2.7 million tons of meat per year. Under the agreement, there will be no closures at Smithfield’s facilities and locations, including its Smithfield, Va., headquarters in the historic southeastern Virginia town of about 8,100 where it was founded in 1936, the companies said. Smithfield’s existing management team will remain in place and Shuanghui also will honor the collective bargaining agreements with Smithfield workers. The company has about 46,000 employees.
