Either by doing DNS delegation on the zone boundary or by SWIP'ing the 
space to the other company.

It is very easy to do DNS delegation, say if you have 128.0.0.0/19, and 
you want to delegate 128.0.1.0/24, in your zone file for 
0.128.in-addr.arpa zone put 

1 IN	NS	ns1.othercompany.com
1 IN	NS	ns2.othercompany.com
