Teletouch Regains Current Reporting Status after Filing Previously Deliquent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the 2008 Fiscal Year Period; Teletouch Cautions Investors Not to Rely on These Dated Financial Presentations

Teletouch Communications, Inc. (OTC: TLLE), a leading provider of AT&T (NYSE: T) and T-Mobile USA (NYSE: DT) cellular services, two-way radio, mobile and related consumer electronics products and services, today announced that the Company has regained currency in its public financial reporting as required by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) with the recent filing of its previously delinquent quarterly financial reports for the first, second and third quarters of its 2008 fiscal year, such reports being filed on separate Form 10-Q’s (the “Quarterly Reports”) for the periods ended August 31, 2007, November 20, 2007 and February 29, 2008, respectively. All previous and current annual reports on Form 10-K have been filed, and the Company is both timely and current for its most recent reporting periods, beginning with the fiscal year 2009 ending May 31, 2009 Report on 10-K, and the Company’s most recent fiscal first quarter, for the period ending August 31, 2009. The Company’s 2010 fiscal second quarterly report is due on or before January 14, 2010, and is expected to be filed timely.


The Company previously filed its audited consolidated results for its fiscal year ended May 31, 2008 in its Annual Report on Form 10-K which on January 16, 2009. The prior filed fiscal year 2008 Annual Report included the combined operating results being reported on these Quarterly Reports. The financial information included in these Quarterly Reports include the results of Teletouch’s wholly owned subsidiary, Progressive Concepts, Inc. (“PCI”), for each of these periods. As previously announced, the Company encountered substantial unanticipated delays and difficulties in completing the audits of PCI and the related historical restatements to effect the combination of PCI with Teletouch, following its acquisition of PCI in August 2006, which, in turn, prevented it from filing these Quarterly Reports within the statutorily prescribed timeframe.

The filing of these previously delinquent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q brings the Company into compliance with the reporting requirements as determined by the SEC. As previously announced, the Company received requested relief on certain of its delinquent prior period Quarterly Reports whereby the Company would be required to file its delinquent fiscal 2008 Quarterly Reports, but would not be required to file its delinquent fiscal 2007 Quarterly Reports. In granting the Company relief from filing its 2007 Quarterly Reports, the SEC staff reminded Teletouch that its acceptance of the fiscal 2008 Quarterly Reports as sufficient to bring Teletouch up to date with its filings (“currency” in this regard), would not mean such filings would be deemed as "timely" for the purposes of certain corporate events, including availability of Form S-3 and Form S-8 registrations. The Company’s timely filing of its most recent fiscal 2009 Annual Report on Form 10-K began a period of “timely filing” for determining the Company's future eligibility for these registrations. In addition, the SEC indicated that it would advise further consultation with the staff regarding when Teletouch would be deemed up-to-date in its filings, for the purposes of the availability of Rule 144 resale of restricted securities.
