Telemig Celular S.A. and Amazonia Celular S.A. Announce Commencement of Consent Solicitation

MINAS GERAIS, Brazil, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Telemig Celular S.A. ("Telemig") and Amazonia Celular S.A. ("Amazonia") announced today that they have commenced a solicitation of consents (the "Consent Solicitation") from holders of outstanding 8.75% Telemig Notes due 2009 (the "Telemig Notes") and 8.75% Amazonia Notes due 2009 (the "Amazonia Notes" and, together with the Telemig Notes, the "Notes"). The purpose of the Consent Solicitation is to amend certain provisions of the indenture governing the Notes (the "Indenture") to address the technical default under financial ratios caused by Amazonia's recording of provisions with regard to contingent liabilities in connection with Imposto de Circulacao de Mercadorias e Servicos taxes ("ICMS Provisions") that are currently the subject of litigation with a few of the Brazilian states (the "Proposed Amendments"). Each holder who consents to the Proposed Amendments will also be waiving (the "Proposed Waivers") certain past defaults and events of default under the Indenture associated with the ICMS Provisions.

Upon fulfillment of the conditions of the Consent Solicitation, Telemig and Amazonia will provide a consent payment (the "Consent Payment") for each consent properly delivered (and not revoked) prior to the expiration of the Consent Solicitation. The Consent Payment will be US$2.50 in cash for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes. The Consent Solicitation will expire at 5 p.m., New York City time, on April 16, 2007, unless extended. The approval of the Proposed Amendments and Proposed Waivers requires the written consent of holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of each of the Telemig Notes and the Amazonia Notes at the time outstanding, voting separately. If the required consents are not received by the expiration date, Telemig and Amazonia may, in their sole discretion, terminate or extend the Consent Solicitation.

Telemig and Amazonia have engaged Merrill Lynch & Co. to act as solicitation agent in connection with the Consent Solicitation. Questions regarding the Consent Solicitation should be directed to Merrill Lynch & Co., Liability Management Group, at (888) ML4-TNDR (US toll-free) or (212) 449- 4914. Requests for documentation in connection with the Consent Solicitation may be directed to Global Bondholders Services Corporation, the information agent for the Consent Solicitation, at (866) 873-6300 (US toll-free) or (212) 430-3774.
