I mean no offense by this, but ASC's finances have never been public. We don't exactly intend to start showing off our bank statements. ASC's main, but not only, costs are hosting. ASC's gigantic traffic means high requirements not just for bandwidth, but also for the actual processing power and disk performance of the server; this necessitates at the very minimum a high-end VPS if not a dedicated server altogether. The $7/month "unlimited" plans you see on some hosts will NOT cut it, not in the least.
