Service Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 were $10.8 million versus $7.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, an increase of 52%. Service revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011 benefited from an increase in the number of billable units and higher usage, and the inclusion of StarTrak.
