DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS ASSOCIATES COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF COMPUTER LOGICS

 ALPHARETTA, Ga., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Communications Associates Inc. (DCA) (NYSE: DCA) today announced it has completed the acquisition of Computer Logics Limited of Cleveland -- a manufacturer of data communications products for personal computer (PC) to IBM and Unisys mainframe connectivity -- for approximately $8 million in cash and retirement of approximately $4 million in shareholder debt.
 Under the terms of the agreement, the final purchase price may increase by a maximum of approximately $4 million based on the performance of the Computer Logics and related DCA product lines over the next two years.
 Founded in 1983 and privately held, Computer Logics designs, manufactures, markets and support products for workstation connectivity to IBM and Unisys mainframes from a variety of desktops over a broad range of protocols.
 DCA acquired a line of Unisys communications products through its merger last April with Intercomputer Communications Corp., formerly of Cincinnati. DCA'a IRMA line of PC to IBM communications mainframe hardware and software products are considered a "de facto" standard in the industry.
 DCA also said that William E. Pritts II, Computer Logics' president and chief executive officer, will become DCA's chief financial officer.
 A graduate of Case Institute of Technology, Pritts has been president of Computer Logics and one of its predecessor companies since 1983. Pritts is a certified public accountant (CPA) and a former partner at Ernst & Young.
 DCA intends to integrate Computer Logics into the company. The specifics of the integration are currently being worked out.
 During its fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 1992, Computer Logics had sales of $23.8 million. Profits were not disclosed.
 DCA's sales for its fiscal year ended June 30, 1992, were $209.4 million with earnings of $19.7 million.
 Based 30 miles north of Atlanta with offices worldwide, DCA designs, manufactures, markets and supports products worldwide that enhance productivity for PC users.
