(CCTR) China Crescent Announces Greenfield OTC Investment Strategy Tutorial for Investors and Entrepreneurs

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - China Crescent Enterprises, Inc. (OTCBB: CCTR) today announced a Webcast scheduled for release Thursday, February 17th from the NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) (OTCQB: NWMT) Greenfield Partnership Program to present an over-the-counter market investment strategy tutorial. The Webcast is targeted at both novice and advanced OTC investors as well as entrepreneurs seeking growth capital from the OTC Private Investment in Pubic Equity (PIPE) market.

"The good news for OTC investors should be that average share prices are up according to OTCBB statistics," said Philip Verges founder of the Greenfield Partnership Program. "However, I would not suggest an investment strategy based on an OTCBB increasing price per share trend. While the average OTCBB price per share increased approximately 35% in 2010 compared to 2009, the number of securities traded on the OTCBB decreased by almost 30%. The number of market makers per OTCBB security is down 67% from January 2010 to January 2011. The number of total positions held in OTCBB securities is down 72%. Nevertheless, total share volume and dollar volume is up. The OTC environment is changing dramatically. Both OTC investors and entrepreneurial management teams need to review the changing OTC landscape and correspondingly update their go to market strategies."

The Greenfield Partnership Program was launched more than a year ago to support entrepreneurial, high growth companies in achieving their operational and business objectives and has been instrumental in assisting member companies with fundraising and market penetration. China Crescent has been working diligently with the NewMarket Greenfield Partnership Program to expand its business by offering high quality, affordable technology solutions from China into the growing economies of East Africa, Latin America and other Asian countries.

China Crescent recently reported $50.9 million in revenue through the first nine months of 2010, compared to $30.3 million for the same period in 2009, a 67% increase. Additionally, the Company's net income for the first nine months of 2010 was $3.3 million, up from $1.9 million for the same period in 2009. China Crescent's revenue and net income through the first three quarters of 2010 has exceeded the Company's 2009 annual revenue and net income results. China Crescent achieved $45.6 million in 2009 annual revenue with $2.2 million in net income.
