Re: ARIN policy on acquisitions ?

Check their WWW page:

     Transfer Requirements
     ARIN will consider requests for the transfer of IP space only upon receipt of evidence that
     the new entity has acquired the assets which had, as of the date of the acquisition or
     proposed reorganization, justified the current entity’s use of the IP space. Examples of
     assets that justify use of IP space include, but are not limited to: 1) existing customer base
     that utilizes some or all of the IP space, 2) qualified hardware inventory, and 3) specific
     software requirements.
