      Dear APNIC Member,
      This notice is being sent to all APNIC members to remind you of the
      procedures involved if an organisation wishes to transfer its APNIC
      membership or address resources.
      As we all know, the Internet industry in this region has been undergoing
      substantial change in recent years. In particular, over the past year the
      number of mergers, acquisitions, and business closures has increased.
      In this context, it is important to remind all members that APNIC
      memberships and Internet resources are not automatically transferable. In
      particular, any transfer of IP Addresses and AS Numbers must be approved by
      APNIC, before it can be registered, and without registration IP address
      blocks cannot be fully recognised within the Internet infrastructure.
      Therefore, if your organisation plans to alter its corporate structure (such
      as by merger, acquisition, takeover, or sale) please contact APNIC to
      discuss the status of your membership and address holdings, before
      finalising any agreements.
      A summary of APNIC's policies in this regard is provided at:
      We also recommend that any third parties involved in transfer of company
      assets (such as administrators, liquidators, receivers, or lawyers) should
      be referred to this important information too.
      Best regards
      Paul Wilson
      Director General
