NewMarket China, Inc. Releases CEO Letter to Shareholders Highlighting Share Price Potential in Relation to Fundamental Financial Performance

Company Reported 2007 36% Revenue Increase to $40 Million and 83% Net Income Increase Over 2006, Not Yet Reflected in Share Price Appreciation

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - NewMarket China, Inc. (OTCBB: NMCH) today released a letter to shareholders from CEO John T. Verges. The letter highlights the Company's meteoric growth to $40 million in 2007 revenue and financial performance over the past five quarters since the Company's reorganization. The letter goes on to discuss how the current share price performance has not yet reflected the Company's fundamental financial performance.

Operational Performance Not Yet Reflected in Otherwise Low Share Price

The letter provides thoughtful internal analysis on share price performance potential. The purpose of the letter is to provide ongoing insight to shareholders and investors in regard to management's ongoing commitment to the Company's vision while current market performance is not necessarily conveying fundamental financial progress. The CEO's intention is to open a dialogue with shareholders and investors on the relationship between operational performance and share price performance.
