Deer Valley Corporation Updates Fourth Quarter Business Outlook by Confirming Stable Earnings Expectations and a Continued Strong Backlog in the Face of the Weak Housing Market

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - Deer Valley Corporation ("Deer Valley" or the "Company") (OTCBB: DVLY) today updated its business outlook for the 2007 fourth quarter. The Company expects to generate fourth quarter revenue of approximately $16.6 million. This slight decline from the 2007 third quarter is attributable to the seasonal effect of scheduled production holidays. Pretax earnings for the 2007 fourth quarter are expected to be in line with the 2006 fourth quarter and the 2007 third quarter. The Company's plants in Guin, Alabama, and Sulligent, Alabama, are operating near capacity. The Company's total backlog is currently in excess of $10 million.

"Turmoil in the credit markets is presenting a formidable challenge to the housing industry," said Deer Valley's CEO Charles G. Masters. "Through the outstanding performance of our retail dealer network, an unusually innovative staff, and our industry leading product line Deer Valley has been remarkably successful in countering this well publicized, industry wide challenge. As a result, we continue to report a solid backlog, our plants are full, and we are seeing a number of promising opportunities for possible business combinations. Although Deer Valley is correctly viewed as an integral part of the residential building industry, we have historically not bought land or built houses on speculation. The net result is that neither our strong balance sheet nor our future earning expectations are in jeopardy from any potential devaluation or abandonment costs related to excess finished goods inventory or real estate holdings."
