NewMarket Technology, Inc. Targets $6.00 Total Value per Share

Company Presents Plan to Augment Stock Value Above and Beyond Share Price Through Innovative Dividend Strategy

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 27, 2009) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) today released an on-demand Webcast to present a plan for augmenting share price value through an innovative dividend strategy. Management has previously communicated plans to enhance a potential NewMarket price per share increase through an improved balance sheet and capital structure in addition to a listing on the OTCQX. Beacon Equity Research has rated NewMarket as a speculative buy with a target $1.42 pps. Having now completed the intended balance sheet improvements and capital restructuring, today management presented a plan to augment the Beacon Equity $1.42 target price per share with a supplementary value to be derived through the anticipated issue of multiple dividends. In the Webcast, management presents a target of delivering over $6.00 of total value per share through a combination of share price appreciation and the value of issued dividends.

"I believe NewMarket has $6.00 of potential value per share today," said Philip Verges, CEO and Founder of NewMarket Technology, Inc. "It is my opinion, with approximately $100 million in annual revenue and a positive operating income, in combination with the magnitude of NewMarket's reported shareholder equity, that on a national exchange, NewMarket could support a $6.00 pps. However, we are not on a national exchange and even an increase to the Beacon Equity target $1.42 pps will not get the Company listed on a national exchange. For that reason, we have devised the dividend strategy presented in the Webcast announced today to deliver additional value to shareholders through the innovative issue of multiple dividends."

NewMarket has recently announced an anticipated dividend distribution of the common stock of two foreign subsidiaries. A NewMarket subsidiary with approximately $40 million in revenue from operations in China is already independently quoted on the OTCBB. NewMarket has announced plans to distribute stock in the publicly traded Chinese subsidiary to NewMarket shareholders. NewMarket has also recently announced plans to establish an independent listing of a South American subsidiary and similarly distribute publicly traded stock to NewMarket shareholders.

The on-demand Webcast includes updates on the Company's $75 million in total new sales contracts signed in 2009 and the recently announced letter of intent to take a first step toward achieving the benefit of a national exchange listing.

A link to the Webcast is now available on both the corporate website homepage and investor relations page at www.newmarkettechnology.com titled 'NewMarket Corporate Update Webcast.'
