DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NMKT) has been rated Speculative Buy with a price target of $0.24 by Micros Report in an updated research note. Michael Willingham, Micros Report Director of Research, initiated research coverage on the company a year ago, publishing his first report on NewMarket in November 2007. In September, Micros Report issued an updated report and today has issued an updated research note in conjunction with NewMarket's filing of its third quarter SEC Form 10-Q.

NewMarket reported $76 million in revenue for the first nine months of 2008 with net income of $3.7 million. Net income has increased 36% and revenue has increased 20% in the first nine months of 2008 compared to the same period last year.

In the updated research note, Willingham stated, "Our most recent research report in September assigned a fair market value of $0.78 per share for NewMarket Technology, however the share price has fallen significantly since the publishing of that report. During this same period, prices of other equity securities worldwide have fallen by notable margins as well. The company has reiterated the quality of its business through its 3rd quarter financial results featuring a total of $76 million in sales for the first nine months of 2008 and profit of $3.7 million over the same period. Those are increases of 20% and 36% respectively year over year. Notwithstanding these record results, a reduction in our price target is warranted, not due to a deterioration of company fundamentals but instead due to the collapse of applicable industry market multiples. Upon a renewed analysis of market comparables, we have found a more appropriate target price to be $0.24 per share. However, we expect to update this price in the future as the company continues to successfully operate its business and at such time market fundamentals experience a reversion to the mean."

In the report, NewMarket is compared against other companies in the technology sector to include: Affiliated Computer Services, Inc., Edgewater Technology, Inc., TechTeam Global, Inc., Nci, Inc., Acxiom, iGATE Corp, Computer Sciences Corp, Rightnow Technologies, Inc. and Perot Systems Corp.
