Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports is reporting that with the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M, the Southeastern Conference raised its total revenue by more than $41 million to $314.5 million, according to the conference's latest federal tax return.

The return, provided late Tuesday night in response to a request from USA TODAY Sports, also shows that commissioner Mike Slive's base compensation for the 2012 calendar year was increased by just over $230,000 to nearly $1.2 million. That 25% raise helped offset the absence of bonus compensation in 2012 for Slive, who received $550,000 in bonuses and incentives in 2011, when his total pay was nearly $1.6 million.
The ACC had the next-greatest revenue total during fiscal 2011-12 at $223.3 million.
