                    NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
                              (Unaudited)


(1)  BASIS OF PRESENTATION - The consolidated financial statements
     of Cincinnati Bell Inc. have been prepared pursuant to the
     rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission
     ("SEC") and, in the opinion of Management, include all
     adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results of
     operations, financial position and cash flows for each period
     shown. All adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature
     except for those outlined in Notes (2), (3), (4), (7) and (8).
     Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included
     in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally
     accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted
     pursuant to SEC rules and regulations. Management believes
     that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information
     presented not misleading. It is suggested that these financial
     statements be read in conjunction with financial statements and
     notes thereto included in the Company's 1994 Annual Report on
     Form 10-K and the current year's previously issued Forms 10-Q.

     The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of
     Cincinnati Bell Inc. ("CBI") and its wholly owned subsidiaries
     (the "Company"). The Company operates in three industry
     segments. The telephone operations segment includes Cincinnati
     Bell Telephone Company ("CBT") which provides
     telecommunications services and products. The information
     systems segment includes Cincinnati Bell Information Systems
     Inc. ("CBIS") which provides data processing services and
     software development services. The marketing services segment
     includes MATRIXX Marketing Inc. ("MATRIXX") which provides
     telephone marketing, research, fulfillment and database
     services.

(2)  1995 BUSINESS RESTRUCTURING - In the first quarter 1995, the
     Company approved a restructuring plan for CBT and CBI. The
     Company recorded $132 million of special charges in the first
     quarter 1995 to reflect the cost of restructuring programs and
     workforce reductions at CBT ($124 million) and CBI ($8
     million).

     Included in the $132 million were charges for pension
     enhancements, curtailment losses for postretirement healthcare
     costs, lease termination costs, vacation buyouts, and severance
     payments. The pension and postretirement charges will require
     minimal cash outflows in the near term. During the nine months
     ended September 30, 1995, $6.6 million in cash charges were
     applied against the 1995 restructuring reserve leaving a
     balance of $125.4 million.

(3)  RESTRUCTURING AND DISPOSAL OF CBIS OPERATIONS - In 1993 a
     restructuring and disposal reserve was established at CBIS. At
     the beginning of 1995 a balance of $11.0 million remained in
     the reserve. For the nine months ended September 30, 1995
     total net charges to the reserve amounted to $4.2 million of
     which $3.5 million required cash outlays. The charges were
     primarily for discontinued products and contingencies related
     to businesses sold. The remaining reserve balance of $6.8
     million at September 30, 1995 is for estimated future costs
     associated with a lease termination, discontinued products and
     contingencies related to businesses sold.

(4)  CINCINNATI BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY - The following summarized
     financial information, in millions of dollars, is for the
     Company's consolidated wholly owned subsidiary, Cincinnati Bell
     Telephone Company:

</TABLE>


     Results for the nine months ended September 30, 1995, include
     special charges of $124 million recorded in the first quarter
     for restructuring CBT's operations as described in note (2).
     These charges reduced CBT's net income by $79.0 million.

     Results for the nine months ended September 30, 1994, include
     two other non-recurring charges. In 1994 the Company and its
     subsidiaries, adopted SFAS 112, "Employers' Accounting for
     Postemployment Benefits", thereby reducing CBT's net income by
     $2.4 million (total $2.9 million across CBI), net of a deferred
     tax benefit. In addition, CBT recognized $2.5 million in
     incremental postretirement expenses resulting from adjusting
     deferred amounts to a level that is expected to be recovered in
     regulated rates. This adjustment reduced net income by $1.6
     million. CBT had received approval from the Public Utilities
     Commission of Ohio ("PUCO") in 1993 to defer these incremental
     postretirement expenses.

(5)  AT&T RELATIONSHIP - The Company derives significant revenues in
     all three of its business segments from AT&T and its affiliates
     by providing network services, information management systems,
     and marketing services. As a result of the merger of AT&T and
     McCaw Cellular Communications Inc. in the third quarter of
     1994, the Company's revenues from AT&T as combined with McCaw
     have increased when compared to prior periods. Revenues
     (excluding network access charges) from AT&T accounted for 22%
     of the Company's total consolidated revenues for the nine
     months ended September 30, 1995.

(6)  INTEREST RATE AND CURRENCY EXCHANGE SWAP - The Company has an
     interest rate and foreign currency swap agreement in place to
     reduce the impact of changes in interest rates and foreign
     currency exchange rates. The Company accrues interest on a
     notional amount of 225 million French francs. The approximate
     effective rate is such that net interest expense is based on
     the interest cost implicit in the contract measured in French
     francs (approximately 11%). Net amounts due to or from the
     counterparty are reflected in interest expense in the periods
     in which they accrue. The net effect of the swap for the first
     nine months of 1995 and 1994 was to increase interest expense
     by $3.8 million and $3.3 million, respectively. For the first
     nine months the swap also increased the Company's average
     interest rate from 7.7% to 8.5% in 1995 and from 7.3% to 8.0%
     in 1994.

(7)  ACQUISITION - In March 1995, CBIS acquired X International of
     Bristol, England for cash. The acquisition was accounted for
     as a purchase. X International provides billing software
     development services for telecommunications companies in
     Europe.

     Incident to this acquisition, CBIS acquired the on-going
     software development projects of X International. Of the
     purchase price, $2.5 million was allocated to in-process
     research and development costs. Accordingly, these costs were
     expensed in March of 1995 resulting in a non-recurring charge
     which reduced net income by $1.5 million or $.02 per common
     share.

(8)  CONTINGENCIES - The Company, which has a 45% interest in a
     cellular partnership, is seeking to dissolve the partnership
     because of poor performance. The Company has pursued this
     litigation to maximize the value of this asset for the benefit
     of the shareholders. There are many possible outcomes of this
     litigation. The potential impact of a settlement from the
     lawsuit is an extremely broad range depending upon the form of
     distribution and the amount of damages awarded. At this time,
     the Company is unable to determine a range but the Company
     believes it will recover its $46 million investment in the
     partnership.

             MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
           FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

CONSOLIDATED

The Company's consolidated net income and earnings per common share for the
quarter ended September 30, 1995 were $28.7 million and $.43 compared to
$20.1 million and $.31, respectively, for the same three month period 1994.
The results reflect increases of $8.6 million in net income and $.12 in
earnings per common share.

The Company's consolidated net loss and loss per common share for the first
nine months 1995 were $3.8 million and $.06 compared with net income of $51.5
million and earnings per common share of $.79, respectively, for the first
nine months 1994. The results for the nine months 1995 included $132 million
of special charges and a non-recurring charge of $2.5 million. The special
and non-recurring charges reduced net income by $85.6 million or $1.29 per
common share. The results for the nine months 1994 included a charge for the
cumulative effect of an accounting change for postemployment benefits. This
charge reduced net income by $2.9 million or $.04 per common share. Excluding
the special and non-recurring charges, net income and earnings per share for
the nine months ended September 30 would have been $81.8 million and $1.23
for 1995 compared to $54.4 million and $.83 for 1994, respectively.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the consolidated
financial statements and segment data. Results for interim periods may not be
indicative of the results for the full year.

1995 BUSINESS RESTRUCTURING

In the first quarter 1995, the Board of Directors approved a restructuring
plan for CBT and CBI. These actions resulted in the recording of $132 million
of pre-tax special charges in the first quarter 1995. The charges,
principally related to pension enhancements and associated postretirement
health costs, were based on retirements and other costs of employee
separations.

CBT announced in February 1995 that it would eliminate approximately 800
management and hourly employees by 1997 through early retirement incentives.
Over 1,300 employees accepted the early retirement offer including
approximately 1,000 hourly employees. As a result, CBT recorded restructuring
charges of $124 million. CBT has the option to delay the retirement date of
the hourly employees through March 1997 for a smooth transition. Through the
end of the third quarter approximately 210 management and 195 hourly
employees had left as a result of the offer. CBT's plan was developed by its
Business Transition Team and involves the re-engineering of the telephone
operations to streamline the fundamental processes and work activities at
CBT. Implementation of the plan is expected to position CBT to better respond
in an increasingly competitive business environment.

CBT has reorganized its functions into 12 processes designed to streamline
work. It has also put in place a management team responsible for the
processes. Other elements will be adopted over the next several years. CBT
will develop advanced information systems in response to increasing
expectations of its customers. The development costs for such systems will
increase 1995 expenses. These costs are expected to be incurred prior to the
release of many of the employees from the workforce. CBT estimates that the
restructuring, when fully implemented in 1997, should result in a net
reduction of its workforce by more than 800 employees and reduce operating
expenses in excess of $50 million from what they would have been. The
specific future financial impact of the cost savings on CBT's earnings is
uncertain as it will depend upon regulatory treatment and the competitive
market.

               MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
        FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (Cont.)

Restructuring charges of $8 million were recorded by CBI. The restructuring
plan included early retirement incentives similar to CBT's as well as
voluntary separations.

</TABLE>


The continued growth in access lines, along with new rates in Ohio effective
May 1994 and in Kentucky effective May 1995 increased local service revenues
by $3.2 million and $11.7 million for the three and nine months 1995 compared
to 1994. The remainder of the increases ($1.9 million and $7.0 million,
respectively) was primarily from increased customer usage of central office
features and directory assistance.

Network access revenues increased for both periods. The increases were from
greater sales of special access services, higher end user fees as a result of
access line growth and increased minutes of use. For the nine month period,
switched access net revenues increased from lower support payments to the
National Exchange Carrier Association, partially offset by decreases in Ohio
intrastate carrier common line revenues resulting from a rate decrease in May
1994.

Long distance revenues decreased because of lower settlements with
interexchange carriers and independent companies.

Other telephone operations revenues increased from growth in customer premise
equipment repairs, payphone agent services for interexchange carriers, wire
maintenance, voice mail, and billing and collection services. The increases
were partially offset by decreases from lower sales of merchandise and an
increased provision for uncollectibles.

               MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
        FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (Cont.)

Operating expenses for telephone operations decreased by $1.4 million for the
third quarter and increased for the nine months by $8 million compared to the
same periods in 1994. Contract services for systems development and other
services increased $4.8 million and $10 million, respectively, primarily as a
result of the business restructuring. The nine months increase also includes
higher depreciation and amortization expenses of $2 million as a result of
rate represcriptions in Ohio which became effective in July 1994.
Right-to-use fees were lower by $5.9 million and $4.3 million for the three
and nine month periods of 1995 when compared to the same periods of 1994 from
fewer switch conversions and network software upgrades. The first quarter
1995 business restructuring caused pension costs and contract labor costs (as
mentioned above) to increase but this was offset somewhat by a decrease in
salaries and wages from a reduction in employees. This trend will continue
throughout the remainder of the year as the business restructuring is
implemented. First quarter 1994 expenses include a $2.5 million nonrecurring
charge for postretirement benefit costs.

</TABLE>


Information Systems' revenues were up $.8 million during the three months
ended September 30, 1995, and $22.8 million during the nine months ended
September 30, 1995 compared to the same periods last year. Revenues from data
processing and professional services had outstanding growth with increases of
$9.7 million and $40.5 million for the three and nine months, respectively.
Data processing revenues increased because of strong subscriber growth in the
cellular industry somewhat offset by lower net prices. Professional services
revenues grew from increased development requests for product enhancements
from existing clients. Revenues from international clients for the
development of telecommunications solutions declined $8.9 million and $17.7
million for the same three and nine month periods when compared to 1994. This
decline was the result of the completion of one contract in early 1995 and
the delayed delivery of another contract in 1995.

Information Systems' costs and expenses were lower by $2.0 million during the
three months ended September 30, 1995 versus the previous year, and higher by
$10.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 1995 versus the
prior year. Costs and expenses increased $3.7 million for the third quarter
and $8.8 million for the year to date primarily from increased costs related
to the data processing and professional services revenue growth. Sales and
marketing and general and administrative costs were lower by $3.7 million and
$7.7 million for the two periods, respectively, as the result of workforce
reductions and lower rent costs. Research and development costs increased
$3.9 million and $13.9 million for the quarter and nine months, respectively.
The increase for the nine month period includes $2.5 million of costs as the
result of expensing the in-process research and development projects of X
International (see Note 7 of Notes to Financial Statements). Research and
development expenses were also higher in 1995 because of increases in
development activity for billing systems solutions software. Depreciation and
amortization expenses increased $1.4 million for the nine months from
increased amortization of capitalized software. Costs associated with
international contracts declined $5.1 million for the quarter and $5.8
million for the nine months because of reduced activity in international
contracts.

Marketing Services revenues were up $6.3 million and $38.8 million during the
three months and nine months ended September 30, 1995, respectively. Revenues
from a major provider of satellite broadcast services accounted for a large
part of the increased revenues in the three and nine month periods. Other
revenue increases were recorded in outbound services and European operations.
Revenue growth was somewhat lower than it would have been in the third
quarter due to the reduced campaign activity of a major customer.

Costs and expenses increased at nearly the same rate as revenues for the
three months and at a lower rate for the nine months compared to last year
reflecting continuing cost control efforts.

Higher sales of used telecommunications equipment and commodities scrap by
the Company's supply business and a successful sales campaign in the
directory business accounted for revenues increases of $3.8 million and $3.2
million, respectively, for the nine months in 1995 compared to the same nine
months in 1994. Decreases in operating expenses for the three and nine
months, respectively, were caused primarily from lower direct costs in the
long distance re-selling and supply businesses partially offset by increases
in costs associated with the sales revenues in the directory business.

Interest expense increased primarily because of higher interest rates on
short-term borrowings. Interest expense for the Company's swap agreement was
$1.3 million and $3.8 million for the quarter and nine months ended September
30, 1995 compared to $1.1 million and $3.3 million for the quarter and nine
months ended September 30, 1994. The interest expense for the swap will
continue to increase as interest is accrued on the principal and unpaid
interest costs. The accrued interest on the French franc loan segment of the
swap is 158 million French francs or $32.0 million at September 30, 1995. The
Company has not hedged the currency risk associated with the accrued
interest. The swap agreement has increased the Company's weighted average
interest rate from 7.7% to 8.5% for the nine months 1995 as compared to an
increase from 7.3% to 8.0% for the nine month period in 1994.

</TABLE>


Higher income before taxes for the three months and lower income before taxes
for the nine months were the principal reasons for the changes in income tax
expense. The Company's effective tax rates for the three and nine months
ending September 30, 1995 were 34.5% and 37.0%, respectively, compared to
35.8% and 36.7% for the same two periods last year.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

CAPITAL INVESTMENT, RESOURCES AND LIQUIDITY

Management believes that the Company has adequate internal and external
resources available to finance its ongoing operating requirements, including
network expansion and modernization, business development and dividend
programs. The Company maintains adequate lines of credit with several
institutions to provide support for borrowings and general corporate purposes.

Cash provided by operating activities, which is the Company's primary source
of liquidity, was $180 million for the first nine months 1995. Cash from
operating activities was used to fund capital expenditures, acquisitions and
dividends.

The Company's most significant investing activity continued to be capital
expenditures which were $81 million for the nine months ended September 30,
1995, a decrease of $36 million from the same period in 1994. In 1995, CBT
spent less for digital switching equipment, electronic switching equipment
and buildings primarily because of the installation of the North American
Numbering Plan and increased switch activity in 1994. CBIS had reduced
capital expenditures for capitalized software, computers and office equipment
compared to 1994. Requirements for additional updating of facilities are
continuously evaluated based on customer and market demand and engineering
economics. The Company's expenditures for 1995 are expected to be
approximately $120 million with CBT's portion of the total to be about $90
million. Cash used for acquisitions of $18 million primarily included a
payment for an earn-out agreement of a 1993 acquisition and the purchase of X
International in 1995.

               MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
        FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (Cont.)

CBT could decide that in order to remain competitive in the future, it must
aggressively pursue a strategy of expanding its offerings beyond its
traditional business. Capital spending increases under this scenario might
not be incremental as reductions may be achieved in other areas. CBT may also
wish to enter other businesses through investments and strategic alliances
with established companies in such businesses and through the development of
such capabilities internally. Such transactions could require substantial
capital which could be generated internally and from external sources.

As of September 30, 1995, accounts payable and accrued liabilities decreased
$19 million from December 31, 1994. The balance was reduced by payments in
1995 related to an acquisition earn-out agreement, as well as
employee-related costs and software and hardware upgrades that were accrued
at December 31, 1994. The balance of accrued taxes was $17 million lower than
December 31, 1994 resulting from payments made in 1995 for federal income and
property taxes and changes in rates for property taxes. The balance of
non-current deferred income taxes was $49 million lower than at December 31,
1994, as a result of the tax benefit recorded for the special charges in the
first quarter 1995. The balance of other long-term liabilities increased $117
million principally from pension and postretirement liabilities as a result
of the business restructuring charges. During the second quarter 1995, $40
million of CBT's long-term debt due in April 1996 was reclassified to debt
maturing in one year.

REGULATORY MATTERS

FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC)

In August 1995 a U.S. Court of Appeals denied an appeal to overturn the FCC's
order to refund excess earnings at CBT and also disallowed the FCC's limited
offset policy. The Company believes that it is adequately reserved for this
outcome.

KENTUCKY FILING

In October 1994 CBT filed a proposal with the Public Service Commission of
Kentucky ("PSCK") for new regulated rates for telephone services provided to
its Kentucky customers. An order was received from the PSCK in May 1995 that
maintains uniform rates for basic services in CBT's Kentucky and Ohio
metropolitan service areas, but is essentially revenue neutral, as local
service increases are offset by carrier common line and other rate
adjustments. Both CBT and the Kentucky Attorney General filed for rehearing
of certain aspects of the rate order. CBT has been granted a rehearing on one
issue, while all of the Attorney General's requests were denied.

LOCAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPETITION

Several activities are being pursued by CBT specific to local competition. In
September 1995 CBT filed an application for rehearing with the Public
Utilities Commission of Ohio ("PUCO") concerning an August 1995 opinion and
order which granted a cable company a certificate to offer local exchange
service in all or parts of 37 counties in the state of Ohio. The application
for rehearing cites at least eight areas in which CBT believes the PUCO acted
unlawfully. The PUCO had thirty days to order a rehearing or allow the August
decision to stand. In October 1995 the PUCO allowed the opinion to stand.
CBT's application preserves the legal argument to pursue an appeal within
sixty days with the Ohio Supreme Court.

Also in September 1995, the PUCO issued an entry establishing its own
investigation into local exchange competition. The entry establishes the
comment process concerning the local competition draft rules which were
issued in September 1995. Initial comments are due in December 1995 and reply
comments in January 1996. While the PUCO staff issued preliminary draft
guidelines in March 1995 followed by a number of informal workshops, the
draft rules have now been elevated to a formal process by the PUCO.

In April and July, 1995, the PSCK issued administrative orders on local
competition. The orders discuss procedural matters, including the filing of
testimony in February 1996, which will allow the PSCK to determine whether
switched local access competition is viable and sustainable. At this time,
CBT is uncertain as to the future direction the PSCK will take in this
inquiry after February 1996.

EFFECTS OF REGULATORY ACCOUNTING

CBT presently gives accounting recognition to the actions of regulators where
appropriate, as prescribed by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards
("SFAS") 71, "Accounting for the Effects of Certain Types of Regulation."
Under SFAS 71, CBT records certain assets and liabilities because of the
actions of regulators. Amounts charged to operations for depreciation expense
reflect estimated useful lives and methods prescribed by regulators rather
than those that might otherwise apply to unregulated enterprises. Typically,
regulatory recovery periods are longer than the useful lives that otherwise
might be used. Conditions that could give rise to the discontinuance of SFAS
71 include increasing competition, which would restrict CBT's ability to
establish prices to recover specific costs, and a significant change in the
manner in which rates are set by regulators from cost-based regulation to
another form of regulation. CBT is evaluating, in the light of recent
legislative and regulatory changes, its continuing ability to satisfy the
criteria established for reporting under FAS 71.

If CBT were to determine that it no longer meets the criteria for application
of SFAS 71, there would be a significant, extraordinary, non-cash charge.
This would include the elimination of its regulatory assets and liabilities.
It would also adjust the carrying amount of telephone plant to the extent it
is determined such amounts would be considered overstated as a result of the
inability to recover them in future rates. Any adjustment to the net carrying
amount of telephone plant and equipment would result in an increase to the
reserve for accumulated depreciation. CBT estimates the pre-tax charge for
the discontinuance of SFAS 71 could be $200 to $300 million depending on many
factors including business strategy, judgments of competitive impact and
technology changes at the time.

OUTLOOK

Cincinnati Bell operates businesses in several different markets. Each of the
businesses has fluctuations in revenues and operating earnings as the result
of the overall level, timing and terms of many contracts. There is always a
business risk that a customer will decide to perform services in-house or
move its business to a competitor if the services do not meet price and
performance standards. These circumstances may increase the variability of
financial results on a period-to-period basis.

The Company's 1995 revenues may not grow at the same rate as in 1994 because
revenues generated from the WATS operations (acquired in 1993) for 1994 and
1995 will be on a comparable basis.

               MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
        FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (Cont.)

CBT's revenues are expected to increase but could be offset by a potential
decline in its customer base from increased competition. CBT is redesigning
and streamlining its processes and work activities to improve responsiveness
to customer needs, permit more rapid introduction of new products and
services, improve the quality of product and service offerings and reduce
costs.

CBIS will continue to concentrate primarily on building its core business in
the communications market. Timing and adjustments related to international
contracts have and can continue to add variability to CBIS's revenues and
earnings. The wireless market will be the principal driver for CBIS's growth
this year. During 1995, CBIS continued to maintain its client base with the
renewal of several multi-year contracts for customer care and billing
solutions services with major clients. As indicated in the past CBIS expects
current data processing activity for one client to decline up to $15 million
in 1996. However, CBIS also expects that normal growth of other data
processing clients will more than offset this expected decline in revenue.

The continued trend in the outsourcing of telemarketing by major companies is
important for MATRIXX's continued growth. MATRIXX's profitability depends
upon its ability to maintain existing and to add new strategic clients. The
Company continues to closely monitor the results of MATRIXX's operations in
France as they relate to potential impairment of goodwill. The French
operations are improving, but are still operating in a loss position. The
Company continually evaluates the balance of goodwill to determine if the
recorded amount reflects an amount recoverable from operations. The amount of
unamortized goodwill at the end of the third quarter 1995 was $43.5 million.

The other Company businesses expect to continue to grow by offering superior
value, quality and customer service.

The Company has general and specific risks that could affect trends in future
operating results. Some of the risks include international contracts,
sustaining the quality of customer service during downsizing and sustaining
high levels of revenues from certain customers.

The Company continues to review opportunities for acquisitions and
divestitures for all its businesses to enhance shareowner value.

Earnings (loss) per common share for the three and
 nine months ended
September 30, 1995 and 1994 as reported in the Consolidated Statements of
Income were based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding
for the respective periods.  Primary and fully diluted earnings (loss) per
common share were not shown in the Consolidated Statements of Income as they
differ from the reported earnings (loss) per common share by less than three
percent or are anti-dilutive.

* For the nine-month period ended September 30, 1995, common share conversions
  applicable to common share options are anti-dilutive for the primary loss per
  common share calculation and therefore are not included in the calculation.
