DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today announced that Board Member Hugh Robinson will present at the upcoming Wall Street Reporter "San Francisco Small-Cap Forum" Conference to be held July 30, 2008 in San Francisco at the Bankers Club.

Mr. Robinson is a former Chairman of the Dallas Federal Reserve and a retired Major General with a distinguished career serving in the United States Army. Among other prestigious posts, Mr. Robinson served as President Lyndon Johnson's military aide de camp. In addition to his public service experience, Mr. Robinson's career has included extensive executive management experience with senior positions at Southland Corporation and City Place Development Corporation. He is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and earned a Masters Degree in Civil Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

At the conference, Mr. Robinson will review NewMarket's recently announced agreement to acquire Everex:

NewMarket Technology, Inc. to Acquire Everex, a Respected Brand Name in Personal Computing Reporting Approximately $60 Million in Revenue in 2007

"I joined NewMarket's board because I was impressed by management's commitment to building a sustainable business model to continuously bring garage inventions into production," said Mr. Robinson. "The plan is innovative, yet practical and like many new approaches, not initially widely recognized. But management has stayed the course and with the Everex transaction, I believe NewMarket is preparing to emerge as a notable influence in the global technology industry."

Mr. Robinson will be accompanied by NewMarket CEO Philip Verges. In addition to reviewing NewMarket's track record and the impact of NewMarket's recently announced agreement to acquire Everex, the presentation will include an outlook on the global micro-cap and small-cap marketplace.
