CENCALL COMMUNICATIONS CORP. ANNOUNCES INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING OF 4,750,000 SHARES OF COMMON STOCK

 DENVER, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- CenCall Communications Corp. (NASDAQ-NMS: CCAL) announced today an initial public offering of 4,750,000 shares of its common stock at $19 per share. CenCall is the third largest operator of Specialized Mobile Radio ("SMR") wireless communications services in the United States, as measured by the population of its service area. The company's operating regions cover parts of Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, and Texas, with a population of approximately 19 million people.
 The transaction was underwritten by a group led by Merrill Lynch & Co., Salomon Brothers Inc and Reinheimer & Company Inc. The net proceeds of the offering of approximately $82.7 million will be used to repay existing indebtedness, partially fund the build-out of high capacity Digital Mobile networks, and may be used to fund future acquisitions. CenCall's goal is to become the third major provider of mobile telephone services within its operating regions.
 According to Stephen Schovee, CenCall CEO, "CenCall expects to be the first provider of integrated mobile phone, dispatch, short messaging, and mobile data services in its regions. With the completion of the initial public offering, we will have the capital, regulatory approvals and management team in place to carry out our business plan."
 CenCall Digital Mobile network service is expected to be available in Denver and the Colorado Front Range, Seattle, and Portland by early second quarter 1994; in Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Wichita during the first quarter 1995; and throughout CenCall's operating regions by the end of 1996.
 "The increased capacity, enhanced features, and high-quality service made possible by digital technology will allow CenCall to effectively compete with cellular service," said CenCall President Justin Jaschke, who recently left his position as president of Bay Area Cellular Telephone Company to join CenCall.
