AvTel Amends 1998 Net Loss; Tax Benefit Carry-back Reduces 1998 Net Loss by $1,325,000; Amended Form 10-K Filed.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 2, 1999--

AvTel Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: AVCO), a provider of integrated voice, data and Internet services, today filed an amended 1998 Form 10-K which contains restated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 1998. The 1998 net loss has been decreased by $1,325,000 to $5,802,318 ($.61 per share) from $7,127,318 ($.74 per share) as was previously reported.

The restated financial statements recognize the tax benefit of carrying back $4,294,000 of AvTel's 1998 net operating loss to reduce prior years' taxable income. AvTel expects to receive a refund of approximately $1,325,000 of Federal taxes paid in prior years and has recorded a receivable in that amount. The 1998 income tax benefit was increased by a corresponding amount.

Included in the amended 10-K are restated 1998 quarterly results which reflect the quarterly effect of utilizing the tax carry-back. The Company's Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 1999 was also amended to recognize the income tax receivable and to adjust the prior year quarterly results.
