 PAGE AMERICA GROUP REPORTS SECOND QUARTER RESULTS
 HACKENSACK, N.J., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Page America Group, Inc.


(AMEX: PGG) announced today the results for its second quarter which ended Sept. 30, 1991.
 Revenues increased 29 percent over the same period a year ago to $8,652,300 from $6,707,000. The company reported an operating profit of $959,300 compared with $890,200 in the second quarter of last year. Operating cash flow (operating profit before depreciation and amortization) was $2,765,000 compared with $2,415,500 of the prior year. The net loss decreased to $970,900 or 41 cents per common share from $1,137,900 or 47 cents per common share.
 The net loss for the current quarter, which was anticipated, is due primarily to the financing cost and non-cash charges for depreciation and amortization associated with the acquisition of NYNEX Paging Company in July of 1990.
 During the quarter, 6,839 net pagers were added to the subscriber base, as compared to 4,997 the prior year (excluding the NYNEX acquisition).
 Page America Group, Inc. provides radio paging services over its own networks in the New York and Chicago metropolitan markets. The company is the second largest provider of paging services in these two markets and the eighth largest provider in the United States. As of Sept. 30, 1991, the company has a subscriber base of over 223,108. Among the various wireless communications services, paging is recognized as offering the lowest cost and the greatest portability while being the most unobtrusive.
