    108.94 GBP = 192.435 USD (according to

    so, as the servers cost $425 per month, you seem to be losing money monthly on the surface. Could you give us some more information such as which months the yearly clients renew in etc? This would help a lot of us decide whether this is a worth investment. Owner: Providing Security, Administration and Optimization since 2001

    It looks to me like they are making a healthy profit on those servers:

    - Hosting Income(monthly): (800.78 pm) = 1,417.48 USD

    You do need to discount annual paid accounts, but not by so much as to say that those servers are losing money. Plus it appears that he has enough annual accounts that one would be renewing nearly every day, so if that is true it would stabilize the cash flow.
