NewMarket Technology, Inc. Prepares for Listing on Premier Tier of the U.S. Over-the-Counter Market, the OTCQX, in Strategy to Enhance Share Price Performance

Webcast Scheduled Tuesday, October 27 to Review OTCQX Strategy

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 23, 2009) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) today announced a Webcast scheduled for Tuesday, October 27th, to present an update on the Company's plan to move to the OTCQX. The Company has recently been reviewed by Beacon Equity Research and rated as a speculative buy with a target price of $1.42 compared to the recent $0.32 pps. With $95 million in audited annual revenue in 2008 and income producing operations, management considers the Company undervalued. The planned move to the OTCQX is part of management's comprehensive plan to improve value to shareholders. NewMarket is currently a fully-reporting public company with audited financial reports filed with the SEC and available for public review.

The OTCQX marketplace is the premier tier of the U.S. over-the-counter market. Investor-focused companies use the quality controlled OTCQX listing platform to offer investors transparent trading, superior information, and easy access through their regulated U.S. broker-dealers. The innovative OTCQX platform offers companies and their shareholders a level of marketplace services formerly available only on a U.S. exchange. Once listed, NewMarket would find itself among well recognized companies like Adidas, BASF, Peugeot and Benetton. And, like others before it, NewMarket may ultimately use the OTCQX platform as a springboard to NASDAQ or even the NYSE.

OTCQX is fully electronic and gives investors access through all major online and full-service brokerage firms in the U.S., including Schwab, E*TRADE, Scottrade, TD Ameritrade, and Fidelity. Trades are settled and cleared in the U.S. similar to any NASDAQ or NYSE security and trade reports are disseminated through Yahoo!, Bloomberg, Reuters, and most other financial data providers.

OTCQX provides services to companies which enable them to stay informed about their trading activities, while OTCQX shareholders and investors benefit from transparent trading and easy access to company information.

OTCQX includes:

--  OTCIQ -- Market intelligence for investor relations officers,
    providing real-time quote and trade data as well as historical trading data
--  Weekly market report summaries of the Company's trading activity,
    which can be conveniently distributed to board members, the management
    team, and shareholders
--  Access to the OTCQX Market Center in New York City to conduct investor
    meetings and conferences
--  Blue Sky Monitoring Service so brokers can discuss and recommend the
    Company's stock to their clients
--  Ability to display real-time level 2 quotes on the Company's corporate
    website
