NewMarket Technology, Inc. Ranked 21st Fastest Growing Company in North America on Deloitte's 2007 Technology Fast 500

Attributes Its 7,996 Percent Revenue Growth to Its Emerging Market Concentration in China and Brazil

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 23, 2007) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today announced that it ranked Number Twenty-One on Deloitte's 2007 Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth over five years, from 2002-2006. NewMarket Technology grew 7,996 percent during this period.

NewMarket Technology's CEO, Philip M. Verges, credits the rapid growth to the Company's emerging market concentration that delivered over 50% of the $77.6 million revenue in 2006. NewMarket's emerging market concentration to date has been centered in Brazil and China. NewMarket Technology has two regional subsidiaries focused on these emerging markets, NewMarket Latin America, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NLAI) and NewMarket China, Inc. (OTCBB: NMCH).

"To rank on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500, companies must achieve phenomenal revenue growth over five years," said Phil Asmundson, vice chairman, U.S. Technology, Media and Telecommunications, Deloitte & Touche USA LLP. "We applaud NewMarket Technology for being among the fastest growing companies in North America."

Deloitte also noted that NewMarket Technology was one of the five of last year's Top 10 companies to make the list again this year, highlighting that the company has maintained rapid growth enabling it to remain on the Fast 500 list.

Overall, companies that ranked on the 2007 Technology Fast 500 had growth rates ranging from 253 to 79,060 percent over five years, with an average growth rate of 1,823 percent.
