NewMarket Latin America, Inc. (OTC: NLAI) plans expansion into the Peruvian market, leading with services from the company’s subsidiary UniOne and with municipal broadband Wi-Fi services from the company’s parent, NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT). UniOne (www.unione.com.br) is a premier systems integration firm in Latin America representing technologies from leaders such as Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), SSA Global, Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) and Hyperion.

UniOne Plans Expansion into Peruvian Market
UniOne Chile’s general manager Randy Vergara was recently interviewed by Business News America’s on the company’s plans to expand into Peru and told the news agency, “The subsidiary is already bidding for a contract with one company in Peru, and depending on the number of contracts signed and the period they cover, UniOne Chile might consider opening an office there.” Vergara added, “Peru is also appealing as it has low penetration of Hyperion solutions, which are part of Oracle's portfolio and represent UniOne's largest business unit.”

NewMarket Explores Municipal Broadband Wireless in Peru
In addition to the company’s subsidiary UniOne planning expansion into the Peruvian market, NewMarket Latin America will be traveling to Peru for meetings on municipal broadband wireless in the country November 12th-15th. The company is already actively pursuing municipal Wi-Fi projects in other regions of Latin America with their parent company’s subsidiary, Texas-based RedMoon Broadband. Recently, RedMoon Broadband participated in a NewMarket Trade Mission to Brazil to identify municipal Wi-Fi opportunities in the country with national and local government officials in Sao Paulo, Curitiba and the capital, Brasilia. Brazil's telecom regulator, Anatel, recently approved regulations to permit 5,561 Brazilian municipalities to offer Wi-Fi Internet access. Additionally, NewMarket and RedMoon Broadband announced the signing of a non-binding letter of intent to form a partnership with Domos, Ltd. to initiate and develop wireless broadband in Mexico.
Texas-based RedMoon Broadband is a leader in municipal Wi-Fi and has designed, engineered and deployed wireless mesh network solutions providing high-speed Internet service, security surveillance, automatic water meter reading and mobile broadband for municipalities, including Addison, Texas, home to major corporations such as Mary Kay, Pizza Hut and Palm Harbor Homes.
Additionally, RedMoon and Chevron Energy Solutions, a business unit of Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX), deliver service through the companies' SkyPilot mesh network to the 10-square-mile City of Burleson, Texas, supplying an automatic water metering program to more efficiently track consumption, curb water loss and increase revenues. Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) technology will enable Burleson to reduce meter-reading costs, improve the accuracy of readings, support water conservation efforts and raise the level of customer service.

Separately, UniOne recently announced the appointment of the company’s new president, Mr. Alexandre Couto. Mr. Couto is one of the founding members of UniOne and has been responsible for the company’s strategic growth through operations in both Brazil and Chile.
