DALLAS, TX – October 19, 2007 -- NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) announced today that their regional subsidiary, RKM IT Solutions (RKM), has reported that their Microsoft license sales for the third quarter of 2007 have achieved 83% of all the sales reported in the trailing 4 quarters. Microsoft Venezuela, S.A.'s fiscal year ends June 30 and the RKM Microsoft license sales for Microsoft Venezuela's first quarter 2008 have already achieved 83% of all similar license sales achieved in the Microsoft fiscal year 2007. RKM attributes this significant increase in sales primarily to three main customers, which are Molina Agencia de Viajes, a major travel agency, Consorcio Promoting, and Accroven, a natural gas company.
RKM was recently selected by Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) as a Large Account Reseller and Enterprise Software Advisor (LAR/ESA) for Venezuela. This new partnership allows RKM to significantly extend its existing Microsoft Gold partnership to offer high volume licensing, specifically "Enterprise Agreement" (EA) and "Select" for companies with more than 250 PCs and support services to large enterprise and institutional customers.
Microsoft recently completed the competitive evaluation process, selecting RKM as one of only three firms across the country to be a LAR/ESA partner.
