DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) today released a position paper from founder and CEO Philip Verges to communicate a vision for the role of small business in the global economy. The paper draws on Verges' personal experiences since launching a family business that has grown and evolved over the last ten years to report $93.1 million in revenue in 2007 with $7.3 million in net income. The paper illustrates the challenges faced by small business in a big business culture, even though the small business sector contributes more jobs to the global economy and represents a larger percentage of the global gross domestic product than big business. The paper points out the current proliferation of small business public markets around the world as an early sign of the major social, political and economic role to be played by small business in the future.

The release of the position paper titled "It's a Small Business World After All" has been timed to coincide with the strategic plan update Webcast scheduled for later today.

Webcast Scheduled for May 13, 2008 at 4:30 PM EDT

Management will present a strategic plan update, including an increase to the Company's 2008 revenue forecast. Management has previously provided guidance of an anticipated 20% increase in 2008 revenue over 2007. Additionally, management plans to deliver updates on the Company's mobility computing strategy and progress of the Worldwide Strategies, Inc. acquisition.
