NewMarket Technology, Inc. Announces Town Hall Meeting to Present Plan for Continued Aggressive Growth in 2008 From Organic Sales and Acquisition

Annual Town Hall at Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas on January 17 to Review Rapid Five-Year Growth, Breaking Through $100 Million in Profitable Annual Revenue

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - December 14, 2007) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) announced today the Company's annual Town Hall meeting will be held Thursday, January 17, 2008 at 3:30 pm CST in Dallas, Texas, at the Fairmont Hotel (http://www.fairmont.com/dallas). The Town Hall agenda will center on a review of the Company's growth through 2007 and business plans to continue this year's 20% sales and profit growth from organic operations into 2008. The Company will also present its 2008 acquisition strategy expected to augment ongoing organic sales and profit growth. The acquisition strategy is founded on the Company's recent institutional financing which will also be reviewed at the Town Hall.

The Town Hall meeting is an annual event providing shareholders an opportunity to receive updates on company growth and plans for the upcoming year and to meet company management in an interactive forum.

Ongoing 20% Organic Sales and Profit Growth

The Company will review 2007 financial performance featuring the Company's rapid growth to break $100 Million in profitable annual revenue. The Company reported $63.5 million in revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 and $2.8 million in net income. Year-to-date revenue has increased 19% compared to the same period last year and net income has increased 21%. The fourth quarter is historically the strongest revenue and net income period for NewMarket. Current growth is based on organic sales from operations only and not on any acquisitions. The Company will review business plans to continue 20% revenue and profit growth from current operations in 2008 and beyond.

2008 Acquisition Strategy

NewMarket has taken a two-year acquisition hiatus to operationally integrate previous acquisitions and establish organic sales growth traction. After recently closing a strategic financing transaction, NewMarket is prepared to move forward with new strategic, acquisition opportunities. The size and quality of NewMarket's acquisition candidates has improved with the Company's overall growth. The company plans to augment the current 20% growth rate from current operations with accretive acquisitions. Not one of the acquisitions under negotiation at this time contemplates the issue of any NewMarket stock. The acquisition pipeline under negotiation includes over $150 million in annual revenue that would be added to NewMarket's organic sales if the acquisitions are ultimately realized. It is premature to determine with any certainty that any of the acquisitions under negotiation will be completed. The Town Hall will include detailed information on the acquisition pipeline and any acquisition that might have been completed prior to the Town Hall meeting.

The Town Hall will also include a review of the organic growth and acquisition strategy for the Company's subsidiaries, NewMarket China, Inc. (OTCBB: NMCH) and NewMarket Latin America, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NLAI).
