NewMarket Technology, Inc. Announces 200% Increase in 10 Day Average Daily Trading Volume, Building Momentum for Potential PPS Increase to $1.42 Target

CEO Comments on Importance of Trading Volume in Realizing Potential PPS Increase

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) today announced that the Company's 10 day average daily trading volume has increased over 200% to more than 300,000 shares per day with an approximate average $0.37 price per share. The average volume and price per share was calculated based on the 10 trading days ending yesterday, Monday, October 19, 2009. The 200% increase was calculated based on a comparison to the previous 10 trading days. The average daily trading volume for the previous 10 days was approximately 100,000 shares per day with an average share price of $0.40.

"The increased trading volume is a substantial milestone in NewMarket's overall strategy to align share price and fundamental financial performance," said Philip Verges, CEO and founder of NewMarket Technology, Inc. "Beacon Equity Research recently rated NewMarket as a speculative buy with a $1.42 target price per share. I am confident that the NewMarket share price can realize some dramatic increases. However, I believe those potential increases will be predicated on increased trading volume. I do not believe it is unusual to see an initial decrease in share price as trading volume increases. NewMarket has experienced only about an 8% decrease in the approximate weighted average share price over the last ten days while the trading volume has increased over 200%. I anticipate the recent increased volume will contribute to further increases in trading volume. Once an increased trading volume has demonstrated sustainability, I believe at that time the NewMarket share price will have the potential to demonstrate dramatic increases."

Yesterday, NewMarket released an on-demand Webcast to present the price per share potential impact following a $100 million milestone achievement announced last week. The Webcast provides further discussion on the relationship between trading volume and potential share price increases. The Webcast includes an overview of the recent Beacon Equity Research report with the speculative buy recommendation with a price target of $1.42. The Webcast features an overview of the Company's current fully reporting compliance with OTCBB standards and the Company's intent to list on the OTCBB and OTCQX quotation systems.

Last week, the Company announced a letter of intent to provide $36 million in outsourcing services to Aoyuan Electronic Co. ltd in Dalian, China over three years. The letter of intent agreement was executed by NewMarket's operating subsidiary in China. The finalization of the $36 million contract would increase the total revenue value of NewMarket's 2009 sales contracts to over $100 million.
