Company Comments on $0.45 Post-Ticker Symbol Change Share Price and Temporary Trading Irregularities as Part of Ticker Symbol Change Process

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - August 3, 2009) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) has received shareholder questions concerning Company shares they hold in various online brokerage accounts such as TD Ameritrade, E*Trade, Schwab, and Scottrade. Due to the Company's ticker symbol change from "NMKT" to "NWMT" last Friday, shareholders are encouraged to contact their online brokerage services to discuss their access to their shares.

"The ticker symbol has recently changed as part of the Company's strategy to align share price with fundamental financial performance," said Philip Verges, CEO of NewMarket Technology. "The post-ticker symbol change share price is approximately $0.45, and we anticipate that initial share price to be better reflected once the new ticker symbol has permeated through the various brokerage systems. In the meantime, the share price could experience some irregularities. For example, on Friday, the Company's stock only traded 100 shares for a total value of $1. I encourage shareholders to contact their brokerage firm with questions regarding the transition process. In the presentation scheduled for tomorrow, I plan to discuss management's anticipation for the fair value target share price to reach $1 in the near future."

On Friday, July 31, the Company's corporate ticker symbol changed from (PINKSHEETS: NMKT) to "NWMT." The corporate ticker change has been executed in conjunction with a publicly disclosed plan to reduce the number of issued and outstanding common shares. This is part of an overall plan to gain share price traction and improve the potential return on investment for shareholders.
