DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today announced signing a contract with Obrascon Huarte Lain, S.A. (OHL). OHL is a new client for the Company and with this initial contract NewMarket's Brazilian subsidiary UniOne will supply OHL with Oracle's Standard Edition One Database license.

OHL's primary focus is on construction and infrastructure as well as public works maintenance and repair for both the public and private sector.

Managed Services Strategy

NewMarket launched a strategy earlier this year to transition the Company's revenue to recurring revenue from long-term Managed Services contracts and customer relationships. The objective of the Managed Services strategy is to improve the Company's value by extending the average length of customer relationships and contracts and improving the efficiency of regional operations through the consolidation of back office functions. The recurring revenue from Managed Service contracts generally receives substantially higher price to sales and price to earnings valuations than revenue from shorter term client relationships. This is because Managed Service revenue is in essence, a foundation of sales that can be built upon, rather than a sale that has to be renewed more frequently. The managed services business was explained in detail in a PowerPoint Webcast that can still be viewed at http://biz.yahoo.com/cc/4/93884.html.

Recent Managed Services Contracts

Since launching the Managed Services strategy, some NewMarket customers have approved the announcements of long-term Managed Services contracts. Most notable is the Company's recent announcement of a $10.5 million, three-year contact with WBA Telecommunications (news) and a $4 million, three-year contract with Movistar, a division of Telefonica (news). The Company is continuing to build its Managed Services business by signing long-term service contracts and will continue to announce these accomplishments upon customer approval.
