DALLAS , TX--(Marketwire - December 29, 2010) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMTD) (OTCQB: NWMTD) has announced a ticker symbol change effective Monday. NewMarket is a fully-reporting public company current in its required public filings. NewMarket has reported record growth through the third quarter of 2010 and anticipates reporting record growth through the end of 2010. Revenue through the third quarter was approximately $85 million compared to $75 million for the same period last year. Net income through the third quarter was $3.9 million compared to $2.2 million for the same period in 2009. NewMarket recently announced a national exchange listing strategy with details to be presented early next year. The ticker symbol change from 'NWMT' to 'NWMTD' is temporary.
