NewMarket Technology, Inc. Announces Mobile Computing Solution Anticipated to Increase Current $100 Million in Profitable Annualized Revenue and Raise 2008 Forecast

Mobile Computing Solution Adds to Existing NewMarket Emerging Technology Product Line Currently Including VoIP, Broadband Wireless and Network Security Solutions

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today announced adding a Mobile Computing Solution, to include mobile software, mobile security and mobile access, to its current portfolio of emerging technology products and services. The Company launched efforts to build a Mobile Computing Solution offering in the third quarter of 2007. The Company anticipates $20 million in sales in 2008 resulting from its new Mobile Computing Solution offering. The increased sales from the Mobile Computing Solution are anticipated to push NewMarket's revenue past the current $100 million in annualized sales mark. NewMarket has recently released a forecast for 20% organic revenue growth in 2008 over 2007, which did not include the anticipated growth from Mobile Computing Solutions.

Mobile Computing Industry Opportunity in Emerging Economies

The Mobile Computing Industry includes mobile application and security software used on devices such as handheld computers, PDAs, smartphones and cell phones. The demand for mobile software applications is being driven in large part by the growing penetration of mobile phone sales into emerging economies that currently do not have substantial access to the Internet via desktop computing. According to IDC, the worldwide mobile phone market reached a new milestone at the close of 2006 with more than one billion units shipped worldwide over the year.

"Emerging markets contributed to the high volume sales," said Ramon Llamas, a research analyst in IDC's Mobile Technology and Tracking team. "It was not long ago that shipments into mature markets, including Japan, North America and Western Europe, consumed the majority of devices shipped worldwide. More recently, however, device shipments into emerging economies in Asia/Pacific, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America have surpassed shipments to mature markets, and the difference between the two continues to grow."

IDC expects this trend to continue as mature markets reach saturation, and as emerging markets with much lower "teledensity" provide opportunities for handset vendors to attract first-time users.

"In addition, the time to set up a mobile network is much shorter and less expensive than the time to set up a landline network, propelling cell phone shipments further," said Llamas. "Finally, mobile phones are seen as both a practical necessity and a status symbol in many emerging markets."
