DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) today announced New York-based Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP (www.srff.com) as the Company's Attorney Designated Advisor for Disclosure (DAD) for the OTCQX (www.otcqx.com) application process.

The OTCQX marketplace is the premier tier of the U.S. over-the-counter market. Investor-focused companies use the quality controlled OTCQX listing platform to offer investors transparent trading, superior information, and easy access through their regulated U.S. broker-dealers. The innovative OTCQX platform offers companies and their shareholders a level of marketplace services formerly available only on a U.S. exchange. Once listed, NewMarket will find itself among well recognized companies like Adidas, BASF, Peugeot and Benetton. And, like others before it, NewMarket may ultimately use the OTCQX platform as a springboard to NASDAQ or even the NYSE.

OTCQX is fully electronic and gives investors access through all major online and full-service brokerage firms in the U.S., including Schwab, E*TRADE, Scottrade, TD Ameritrade, and Fidelity. Trades are settled and cleared in the U.S. similar to any NASDAQ or NYSE security and trade reports are disseminated through Yahoo!, Bloomberg, Reuters, and most other financial data providers.

OTCQX provides services to companies which enable them to stay informed about their trading activities, while OTCQX shareholders and investors benefit from transparent trading and easy access to company information.

OTCQX includes:

--  OTCIQ - Market intelligence for investor relations officers, providing
    real-time quote and trade data as well as historical trading data
--  Weekly market report summaries of the Company's trading activity,
    which can be conveniently distributed to board members, the management
    team, and shareholders
--  Access to the OTCQX Market Center in New York City to conduct investor
    meetings and conferences
--  Blue Sky Monitoring Service so brokers can discuss and recommend the
    Company's stock to their clients
--  Ability to display real-time level 2 quotes on the Company's corporate

During the OTCQX application process, a DAD assists the Company with disclosure and helps determine the Company's OTCQX eligibility. NewMarket has previously announced plans to move to an upgraded exchange. NewMarket is currently a fully-reporting public company with audited financial reports filed with the SEC and available for public review.
