ViaSat Inc. (VSAT) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2012-03-30.
Highlight of Business Operations:The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of WildBlue from the date of acquisition during December 2009. In fiscal years 2012, 2011 and 2010, we recorded approximately $209.5 million, $220.8 million and $63.4 million, respectively, in revenue and $14.1 million of net loss in fiscal year 2012 and $17.4 million and $0.4 million of net income in fiscal years 2011 and 2010, respectively, with respect to the WildBlue business in the consolidated statements of operations. Net income for fiscal years 2011 and 2010 included $0.9 million and $8.7 million, respectively, in transaction-related expenses related to the acquisition of Stonewood Group Limited (Stonewood) in fiscal year 2011 and WildBlue in fiscal year 2010. In addition, net income for fiscal years 2011 and 2010 included $0.5 million and $2.7 million, respectively, in certain post-acquisition charges recorded for restructuring costs for terminated employees related to the acquisition of WildBlue. There were no transaction-related expenses or post-acquisition charges in fiscal year 2012. These transaction-related expenses and certain post-acquisition charges were recorded in accordance with the authoritative guidance for business combinations (Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 805) adopted on April 4, 2009.
Total cost of revenues increased $85.4 million during fiscal year 2012 when compared to fiscal year 2011 principally related to cost of service revenues increase of approximately $72.6 million. Cost of service revenues increased from $160.6 million to $233.2 million during fiscal year 2012 when compared to fiscal year 2011 primarily from a $26.3 million cost of service revenue increase associated with our new ViaSat-1 satellite, data center, billing system and costs in connection with our Exede broadband services, which commenced commercial operation in January 2012. In addition, cost of service revenue increased on a constant margin basis approximately $25.0 million due to increased service revenues. Cost of product revenues increased from $389.9 million to $402.8 million during fiscal year 2012 when compared to fiscal year 2011 primarily due to increased product revenues, which caused an increase of approximately $13.5 million in cost of product revenues on a constant margin basis.
The increase in selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses of $17.5 million during fiscal year 2012 compared to fiscal year 2011 was primarily attributable to higher support costs of $9.2 million, as well as higher selling costs of $7.4 million. Of the higher support costs, $4.6 million related to our commercial networks segment, $3.0 million related to our government systems segment and $1.6 million related to our satellite services segment. Higher selling costs were incurred across all segments, $2.9 million within our government systems segment, $2.6 million in our commercial networks segment and $1.9 million in our satellite services segment. SG&A expenses consisted primarily of personnel costs and expenses for business development, marketing and sales, bid and proposal, facilities, finance, contract administration and general management. Some SG&A expenses are difficult to predict and vary based on specific government, commercial and satellite service sales opportunities.
Total revenues in our government systems segment increased by approximately $5.2 million in fiscal year 2012 compared to fiscal year 2011, primarily due to an increase in service revenues of approximately $47.0 million, offset by a decrease in product revenues of approximately $41.8 million. Service revenue increased by $35.5 million in government satellite communication systems services (mainly attributable to broadband networking services revenues for military customers), $6.5 million in information assurance services and $3.2 million in tactical data link services. The decrease in product revenues was primarily due to decreases of $28.0 million in information assurance products and $25.3 million in tactical data link products, offset by an increase of $10.9 million in government satellite communication systems.
Product revenues decreased from $584.1 million to $523.9 million during fiscal year 2011 when compared to fiscal year 2010. The product revenue decline was primarily due to lower product sales in our commercial networks segment related to enterprise VSAT networks and products of $29.0 million and consumer broadband products of $29.0 million. Our government systems segment also experienced product revenue reductions as tactical data link products revenues decreased by $23.2 million and information assurance products revenues decreased by $7.0 million. These decreases were offset by higher product sales of $15.5 million in antenna systems products, $10.7 million in government satellite communication systems and $6.1 million in next-generation broadband equipment development programs.
