DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) today announced a scheduled, on-demand Webcast for release Wednesday, November 4th, to report on the Africa Trade Mission currently underway. The Trade Mission to Kenya is focused on business development in East Africa for the Company's systems integration services and emerging technology offerings, to include infrastructure, technology and services in the area of wireless connectivity and mobility computing. NewMarket's board member, former Chairman of the Dallas Federal Reserve and retired Major General Hugh G. Robinson, is a host of the Trade Mission and is scheduled to host the upcoming Webcast. A link to the on-demand Webcast will be published at www.newmarkettechnology.com upon release.

The Trade Mission is conducting a series of business development meetings in Kenya with local business partners, prospective clients and government officials. NewMarket began exploring technology expansion opportunities in East Africa in 2007 as an extension to the Company's established operations in the growing economies in Asia and Latin America. NewMarket is a twelve-year-old, global systems integrator and emerging technology provider with operations in Asia, Latin America and North America. Since 2002, NewMarket operations have expanded from reporting approximately $1 million in annual revenue to over $95 million in revenue in 2008. The Company has set a $100 million profitable revenue forecast for 2009.

NewMarket Targets Telecommunications and Technology Market in Africa

NewMarket is focused on expansion to the African continent, with initial operational development in Kenya and targeting the surrounding emerging economies in East Africa. Earlier this year, NewMarket was invited to present at the African Advanced Level Telecommunications Institute (AFRALTI) WiMax Conference in Nairobi based on the Company's experience in emerging economies. The Company had previously participated in the "Connecting Rural Communities Africa Forum 2007," also in Nairobi.

Broadband adoption in Africa is expected to experience 28% growth annually through 2013 as undersea cables come online. Kenya has one submarine cable in place with two additional cables expected by 2011. The expanded capacity for broadband in Africa is expected to reduce costs by nearly 75%, making broadband affordable to end-users. Africa's current broadband system relies heavily on satellite for broadband communication, which typically costs about 20 times more than broadband offerings in the U.S. A recent report by Pyramid Research stated, "By early 2011, we expect that more than half of all African markets will have 3G, while broadband coverage is increasing daily via both wireless and wireline technologies."

As the region's technology and communication infrastructure grows, NewMarket plans to position itself to provide the high-quality, affordable technology products and services needed. To do so, the Company has announced plans to expand its operations in China into the East Africa region.
