USA Mobility Reports Second Quarter Operating Results, Adopts Regular Quarterly Dividend of $0.65 Per Share
          Subscriber Trends and Operating Margin Continue to Improve

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- USA Mobility, Inc. (Nasdaq: USMO), a leading provider of wireless messaging services, today announced operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2006. Reported revenue for the second quarter was $127.2 million and EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortization and accretion) totaled $37.6 million. Second quarter operating income was $18.7 million, while net income was $11.0 million, or $0.40 per share.

The Company also announced the adoption of a regular quarterly dividend of $0.65 per share. The first regular dividend is expected to be paid late in fourth quarter 2006.

    Key results in the second quarter included:

    * The annual rate of subscriber erosion improved to 17.2 percent from 17.6
      percent in the first quarter and 20.7 percent in the second quarter 2005
      on a pro forma basis.

    * Net unit loss in the second quarter improved to 203,000, compared to
      252,000 in the first quarter of 2006 and 273,000 in the second quarter
      of 2005.  Total units in service at June 30, 2006 were 4,431,000.

    * Average revenue per unit ("ARPU") was $8.74, compared to $9.02 in the
      second quarter of 2005 and $8.80 in the first quarter of 2006,
      reflecting the continuing trend of higher subscriber erosion rates in
      the Company's higher ARPU smaller accounts as compared to its more
      stable, lower ARPU large accounts.

    * Sequential quarterly revenue erosion was $7.7 million or 5.7% percent in
      the second quarter, compared to $8.5 million or 5.9% percent in the
      first quarter.

    * Operating expenses, excluding depreciation, amortization and accretion,
      were $89.6 million in second quarter, a reduction of $6.7 million or 6.9
      percent from first quarter 2006, and represent a reduction of $35.6
      million or 28.4 percent compared to the second quarter of 2005.

    * As a percentage of revenue, EBITDA was 29.6% in the second quarter,
      compared to 20.5% in the second quarter of 2005 and 28.6% in the first
      quarter of 2006.

    * Capital expenses were $4.6 million in the second quarter, an increase of
      3.9% from the first quarter.

    * The Company's cash balance at June 30, 2006 was $109.2 million.

    * The Company paid a special dividend of $3.00 per share, or approximately
      $82 million, on July 21, 2006.

"The Company continued to make steady progress during the quarter toward our 2006 goals and objectives," said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer. "The rate of net subscriber losses continued to improve as we redirected our sales and service focus on target market segments and customer retention initiatives. The announcement of a regular quarterly dividend of $0.65 per share reflects our confidence to continue to drive substantial cash flow for the foreseeable future. We expect to generate cash over the next five years in excess of this rate of recurring dividend and therefore may augment the regular dividend in future periods. We also launched a targeted marketing campaign to communicate USA Mobility's capabilities as a single source for wireless solutions, with particular emphasis on the superiority of our network for first responder organizations."

Thomas L. Schilling, chief financial officer, said: "Our EBITDA margin improved in the quarter as a result of aggressive cost reductions. Operating expenses (excluding depreciation, amortization and accretion) were reduced by 6.9 percent compared to first quarter, outpacing the 5.7 percent decline in revenue." Schilling also provided an update to the Company's financial guidance for 2006, stating: "With the first half of 2006 completed we are pleased to revise our financial guidance: we now expect revenue to be between $495 million and $500 million, at the high end of our original guidance; we expect operating expenses (excluding depreciation, amortization and accretion) to be in a range from $363 million to $368 million, below our original guidance range of $370 million to $380 million; and we now expect capital expense to be between $20 million to $22 million, slightly higher than our original guidance of $15 million to $20 million."
