NewMarket Technology, Inc. Releases YouTube Video With "Unplugged" Introduction of Company to Investment Community

An OTCBB Leader With 5 Yr. Growth From $1 Million Approaching $100 Million in Profitable Annual Revenue Takes Advantage of New Media to Reach Shareholders

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - December 18, 2007) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today released a video on YouTube presenting an "unplugged" introduction of the Company to the investment community. The video is the first YouTube release in a new series of video presentations planned by NewMarket to provide the investment community with improved, frequent insight behind the scenes of a publicly listed small and medium business (SMB). NewMarket has previously released videos on Company projects and events, and all videos are available on the Company's YouTube site at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwTdlrUZ0gg.

"NewMarket Unplugged" on YouTube

NewMarket has always endeavored to go the extra mile in its communications with the micro-cap investment community. The micro-cap market has little media coverage, so companies are left to self-report news to the investment community. In general, micro-cap communication channels have been limited to press releases and public filings. NewMarket has been more proactive utilizing detailed and extensive letters to shareholders that not only report current events, but also go on to discuss management business decisions under consideration, lessons learned, as well as the calculated risks taken that have delivered positive results. NewMarket has also been very active in presenting its investment story by getting out in front of the investment community more frequently than the typical micro-cap listed company. Management makes a concerted effort to schedule regular speaking engagements across the United States and even in foreign cities. The speaking engagements give the investment community an opportunity to judge the capability, integrity and earnest commitment of the management team in a way that can only be presented in person. With the advent of "New Media," channels from blogs to video sites such as YouTube, NewMarket is taking yet another step in its ongoing commitment to go the extra distance in its communications with the micro-cap investment community.
