DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today announced an updated strategy in the Company's ongoing development of innovative communication technology strategies that should immediately begin to result in an anticipated annualized boost of $1.2 million to the bottom line.

NewMarket currently markets Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services and Broadband Wireless services in addition to a number of ancillary applications to support primary innovative communication service offerings. NewMarket has a portfolio of innovative communication operations initiated at various times over the past five years that concentrate on different geographic regions, or otherwise different segments of the overall communications marketplace. The Company is currently realigning its various communication holdings to improve marketing opportunities and create operational efficiencies. The realignment will reduce expenses and add new income, resulting in an anticipated annualized net income improvement of $1.2 million. The realignment is also anticipated to broaden the marketing of NewMarket's innovative communication technologies into an increased number of geographic regions around the world. Accordingly, the Company anticipates a revenue benefit from the updated strategy in the development of innovative communication technologies.

NewMarket's updated strategy includes a combined initiative with Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: ALYI). NewMarket is currently a shareholder in Alternet and has an existing operating agreement with Alternet. NewMarket and Alternet intend to continue the current operating agreement and augment that agreement with a new initiative expected to improve the operating efficiency of both companies, in addition to improving their respective revenue potential. NewMarket and Alternet expect to announce details of the augmented agreement at a future date.
