Deer Valley Corporation Reports Record Earnings for the Second Quarter and the First Six Months of 2008

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - August 7, 2008) - Deer Valley Corporation ("Deer Valley" or the "Company") (OTCBB: DVLY), today announced record earnings for the 2nd quarter and first six months of 2008. In a Form 10-Q filed today, the Company reported net earnings of $1,003,882 for the 2nd quarter of 2008 and $1,679,017 for the six month period ending June 30, 2008. These net earnings equate to $0.09/common share outstanding or $0.04/fully diluted common share for the 2nd quarter. For the six month period ending June 30, 2008, the Company's reported earnings equate to $0.15/common share outstanding and $0.07/fully diluted common share. Stated in relative terms, the earnings per fully diluted common share increased 100% for the 2nd quarter and 250% for the first six months of 2008 as compared to the same periods in the prior year.

Deer Valley's CEO, Mr. Charles G. Masters, added the following caution: "For the next several months, the well-publicized turmoil in the credit markets is expected to have a negative effect on the home sales that are channeled through our established retail network. Although we have been very successful in developing alternative channels of distribution for our modular products, the Company's revenue and earnings in the second half of 2008 will undoubtedly be negatively affected by the unusually slow sales rate at the retail sales centers. On the other hand, the reduction of capacity by competitors in our market area and the passage of the new federal Housing Relief Bill may result in an offsetting positive effect. With its strong modular backlog, the Company anticipates continued profitable operations throughout the last six months of 2008; however, continuation of the record pace set in the first half of the year is certainly not assured."

Additional financial details for the period ending June 30, 2008 can be found in the Company's Form 10-Q filed with the SEC this date.
