NewMarket Technology, Inc. Updates Shareholders on Ticker Symbol Change to NMKTE to Include Instructions on How to Continue Trading Stock

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - September 10, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKTE) today released an update regarding the Company's recent ticker symbol change to 'NMKTE.' On August 28th, the Company filed SEC Form 8-K disclosing the details regarding the recent ticker symbol change to 'NMKTE.' The previous ticker symbol was 'NMKT' or (OTCBB: NMKT).

Since that time, the Company has received a number of questions regarding not only the symbol change, but how to trade the stock with the new ticker symbol. In addition to the SEC Form 8-K mentioned above, more information regarding the ticker symbol change was detailed in a subsequent press release on September 2nd. The Company also published a letter to shareholders with further detail and executive commentary. The letter is available by contacting ir@newmarkettechnology.com.

Continued Trading of NewMarket Stock

The information previously released in regard to the recent symbol change has inadvertently created concern that the stock is not available for trading or might not be available for trading in the near future. The stock's trading has only been confused by the ticker change, but has remained tradable. It is merely a matter of using the appropriate trading symbol, which at this time is NMKTE.OB.

To view a current price or execute a trade using Internet software (i.e. Yahoo!, E*TRADE, Quotestream), the new ticker symbol will have to be entered. Entering 'NMKT' instead of 'NMKTE' will deliver unpredictable results depending on the specific Internet software.
