NewMarket Technology, Inc. Director and Former Dallas Federal Reserve Chairman, Major General (Ret.) Hugh Robinson, Issues Statement in Conjunction With Company's $7 Million Strategic Financing Deal

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - December 7, 2007) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today released a statement from Major General (Ret.) Hugh Robinson, NewMarket Board Member and Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, in conjunction with the $7 million strategic financing transaction the Company announced yesterday.

NewMarket Director Hugh Robinson Statement Regarding Institutional Financing

"The financing transaction announced yesterday is a landmark event in NewMarket's corporate maturation. Not only is the dollar amount of the transaction significant, more importantly the transaction represents NewMarket's ability to successfully engage an institutional investment house. I joined the NewMarket board last year because I was impressed by management's aggressive pursuit of a meaningful and worthwhile vision to establish an altogether new business model for introducing new technologies into the world's under served emerging markets. I felt I could help NewMarket transition from its early stage corporate culture and business organization into a next-stage enterprise demonstrating the type of best industry practices that would support the Company in its growth to a billion dollars in annual revenue. Management has made a number of hard choices over the last year and, in my opinion, the right choices. The financing transaction is directly attributable to a series of steps executed by management over the previous twelve months to prepare NewMarket for an engagement with an institutional investor. This financing will be the cornerstone of NewMarket's continuing corporate maturation and the foundation for additional corporate developments in the coming year in advancing NewMarket's business plan."
