Final stage of APIDT IPv4 address space disposal now open for tenders

12 October 2020

The Asia Pacific Internet Development Trust (APIDT) today opened the third and final stage of its IPv4 address space.

As previously announced, the Trust intends to sell its remaining address holding (43.192/11) via a ‘Sale by Tender’ process.  The Request for Tender document, Tender Response Form, and Standard IPv4 Address Space Transfer Agreement are now available with the opening of Stage 3.

In Stage 3, the block of address space being sold will be subdivided into smaller blocks. Tenders may be submitted for one or more (or all) of these blocks:

Stage 3: 43.192/11        Block Size: /16              Number of blocks: 32

Stage 3 will close on 30 October 2020 at 17:00 (UTC+10).  Successful tenders will be shortlisted thereafter and it is expected that transfers will be completed by the end of 2020.

Stage 2, which offered the 43.128/10 block of IPv4, has been successfully completed and the transfer to the successful tenderer is in progress.  Under the published tender process, KPMG and Maddocks shortlisted and selected the successful tender, which was an offer for the entire block.

The Trustees would like to thank all organizations that submitted a tender in Stage 2 for participating in the process.  After the final stage is complete the total funds raised will be announced, along with other details that can be disclosed at that time.

International consulting firm, KPMG, and legal firm, Maddocks, were commissioned by APIDT to advise on the design of the sale process, to assess tenders in line with the agreed criteria, and to manage the tender stages.
