DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) today announced an agreement to merge its operations headquartered in Brazil with Worldwide Strategies, Inc. (OTCBB: WWSG). NewMarket's operation in Brazil has approximately $20 million in annual revenue. The anticipated merger is expected to include a dividend of Worldwide common stock to NewMarket shareholders. NewMarket will be the majority shareholder of Worldwide as a result of the transaction and the operations in Brazil will continue to be consolidated into NewMarket's financial statement in addition to being independently reported in the Worldwide financial statement.

"We have three intended objectives for the planned merger with Worldwide," said Philip Verges, CEO of NewMarket Technology, Inc. "The first objective is to reestablish an independent listing for NewMarket Latin America shareholders. The second objective is to deliver on the long anticipated dividend of common stock from NewMarket's Latin American subsidiary to NewMarket shareholders, and the third is to establish a national exchange listing for NewMarket's systems integrations business. In a Webcast tomorrow I will elaborate further on all three objectives."

"The management teams at Worldwide and NewMarket are meeting in Dallas next week," said James Samuels, CEO of Worldwide Strategies. "Both management teams are committed to completing the Brazilian operation merger with Worldwide by the end of this year. The Brazilian merger alone is a substantial opportunity for NewMarket, NewMarket Latin America and Worldwide shareholders. The next step to leverage Worldwide as a platform to achieve a national exchange listing for all NewMarket's systems integration operations is an even more substantial opportunity."
