INDE ACQUIRES DURANGO (900) FACILITIES

 INDE ACQUIRES DURANGO (900) FACILITIES
 LOS ANGELES, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Independent Entertainment


Group Inc. (NASDAQ: INDE) announced today it has acquired the audiotext service bureau of Durango Associates located in Las Vegas.
 The acquisition was for an undisclosed cash amount. INDE's pay-per- call service bureau division, 800 Unlimited, will assume technical and marketing operations from Durango effective immediately.
 Durango Associates, based in Temecula, Calif., is one of the country's largest information providers. Durango President Edward Kinsley commented, "This sale allows Durango to rededicate our efforts to our most profitable niche -- direct marketing to our substantial customer base."
 INDE has substantial holdings in the pay-per-call and pay-per-view industry. In addition to 800 Unlimited, INDE controls ConnectCard, audiotext's premier charge card. In conjunction with the acquisition, ConnectCard will take over the operations of TeleCharge, Durango's own audiotext billing system, with 6,000 consumer accounts.
 Already a leader in "800" pay-per-call, the Durango acquisition gives 800 Unlimited all new "900" capabilities, making INDE a one-stop shopping center for its information providers. INDE can now offer 800, 900, credit card processing and private alternative billing, combined with their huge ANI and credit card database used to control fraud and chargebacks.
 Robert Lautz, INDE's chief executive officer, stated that, "I see this acquisition as a milestone opportunity for INDE, its shareholders and its customers. Durango's operation gives us the added capacity and capabilities to greatly increase market share and provide our customers with the finest services available."
