2007 Financial Outlook Update

NewMarket is an aggressive, high growth emerging market and emerging technology company that regularly sets aggressive financial objectives. These aggressive objectives have resulted in the company growing from less than $1 million in revenue in 2001 to $77.6 million in revenue in 2006 with a net income of $5.8 million. NewMarket has previously announced a $120 million revenue target for 2007.

The annualized revenue run rate simply based on the first six months financial performance is approximately $80 million. Not included in the annualized number is any consideration of NewMarket's three year history of generating on average approximately 38% more revenue in the second half of the fiscal year than the first. Taking this seasonal performance trend into consideration, the current revenue run rate suggests NewMarket is on track to realize $95 million in annual revenue for 2007. The achievement of the $120 million revenue target requires NewMarket to successfully convert into sales a current pipeline of over $25 million in additional potential contracts.

The contract pipeline, and progress in adding to the pipeline, will be reviewed in the webcast this Friday. In summary, management does not intend to step back from the goal of achieving the $120 million revenue target. However, management will provide details on the steps necessary for NewMarket to realize additional sales from the current pipeline of new business. Correspondingly, management will update the annual revenue target from a singular high goal of $120 million into a range of revenue with a minimum anticipated and maximum of $120 million.
