Why is the expected reserve not there for an asset added with back-date DPIS and reserve entered at addition?

Asset Cost: 375000

DPIS 01-SEP-2007 00:00:00
Initial Life was 72 period but was updated in Period of addition (period 24145 = Jul-12) 80
Prorate: same month

Expected Monthly Expense = $375999 / 80periods = $4687,50

End of life = 01-SEP-2007 + 80 periods =

2007: 4 periods active

full year each:
2008: 12
2009: 12
2010: 12
2011: 12
2012: 12
2013: 12
2014: End of life = 30-APR-2014

In period 24164 FEB-14, after 78 periods, reserve shown is: $293749.8, but $365624 (or 78 X $4687,50) was expected.

Why the variance?
