NewMarket Greenfield Partners Including (CCTR) China Crescent, (NUBL) NuMobile, (NVAE) Savanna East Africa and (WSGF) World Series of Golf Issue Call to Expand

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - January 20, 2011) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMTD) (OTCQB: NWMTD) Greenfield Partnership Program Director Philip Verges today released an open letter calling for small business stakeholders to band together against the challenges facing small business. The letter encourages participation in the Greenfield Partnership Program as a first step toward a larger movement to improve the overall small business economy. 

The Greenfield Partnership Program was launched more than a year ago to support entrepreneurial, high growth companies in achieving their operational and business objectives. The program has expanded to include eight public and private companies and anticipates an even more rapid expansion of member companies in 2011. The Greenfield Partnership Program has been instrumental in assisting member companies with fundraising and market penetration.

Greenfield Partners today include China Crescent Enterprises, Inc. (OTCBB: CCTR), NuMobile, Inc. (OTCBB: NUBL), Savanna East Africa, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NVAE) (OTCQB: NVAE) and World Series of Golf, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WSGF) (OTCQB: WSGF).

The open letter from Greenfield Program Director Philip Verges is included in its entirety below.

Dear Small Business Stakeholders -

There is strength in numbers. This is the maxim upon which the Greenfield Partnership Program is founded.

Little institutional support is available today for entrepreneurs founding and growing companies. Educational institutions concentrate on providing business school graduates with skills appropriate for jobs at large, established firms. Meanwhile, financial institutions cater to larger corporations, the regulatory and legal environment favors bigger companies, and the news predominantly covers big business.

The Greenfield Partnership Program proposes that small businesses turn to each other to overcome the socio-economic deck stacked against them. The same way the 20th century labor union movement sought to protect worker rights, the Greenfield Partnership Program seeks to level the socio-economic playing field for small businesses.

The Small Business Administration defines firms in the United States with less than 500 employees as a small business, and what is considered a small business in the United States may be considered a small to medium enterprise elsewhere around the world.

Most of us today, everywhere around the world, work for companies with less than 500 employees. So, shouldn't we take issue with a socio-economic environment that is often at odds with our livelihood?

The Greenfield Partnership Program wants you -- the small business stakeholder. Whether you are currently one of the Greenfield Partner company shareholders or an interested investor thinking about becoming a shareholder in a Greenfield Partner company, we want you. If you are an over-the-counter investor in a company that is not a Greenfield Partner today, we want you. If you are an employee of a small business, we want you and we need you. We want all and every small business stakeholder -- owner; management; shareholder, investor, and employee.

According to a report recently published by the Small Business Administration, the rate of small businesses failing in the United States is exceeding the rate of new small businesses starting. The number of failures in 2009 surpassed the number of startups by approximately 100,000. Small businesses account for roughly half of all employment in the United States and that number of small businesses is shrinking. What is the economic pain threshold that must be reached before the general population takes notices of the inequity of resources available to small businesses? How many more jobs must be lost to this small business inequity before we ask, "where are all the economic resources going?"

The small business sector is neglected and misunderstood and the world cannot afford the consequences. The small business sector accounts for the majority of the world's gross domestic product and the majority of jobs not just in the United States, but everywhere around the globe. I would even argue that the end of poverty and the hope for improved global peace is a destination that can only be reached through a robust small-business economy. Our planet has a population of about 6 billion people. About 1 billion people have everything they need and arguably everything they could ever want. The other 5 billion people need everything: roofs, floors, furniture, bed linens, shoes, socks, shirts, pants, toothbrushes, toothpaste, streets, electricity, water, hospitals, hotels, trains, planes and airports -- just for starters. However, in all my travels, I have yet to land in an emerging market where I do not find someone on the ground without a first rate college education. I find that all that's missing in these markets is access to a $100,000 to $1,000,000 small and medium enterprise investment market. The U.S. over-the-counter market is a more than viable solution. An investment can be made in a U.S. OTC-listed company protected by U.S. laws and regulations, while investment funds are deployed to subsidiary operations in high-growth opportunity emerging markets. In these markets, there is no shortage of demand for everything and there is no shortage of talent to deliver upon that demand. Elsewhere, there is no shortage of capital to finance the satisfaction of that demand. The OTC market is a more than viable venue for connecting demand, talent, and capital and realizing the benefits of untapped opportunities in the world's emerging markets.

All that's standing in the way is a good conversation between small business managers, shareholders and stake holders to align objectives and expectations.

There is strength in numbers, and the NewMarket Greenfield Partnership Program wants you to join us today and help other small business entrepreneurs, shareholders and stakeholders to level the playing field for the small business sector.
