Well that's for end users. The company in question seems to be a Telecom
The RIPE model is a very strange and confusing one, where ISPs basically
become LIRs and they themselves assign ASNs and IPs, and there are 23000
LIRs in ARIN. Basically any ISP , webhosting company, datacenter or even a
trading company can become a LIR.
It's a very strange model which had just cost me 15 minutes of my time to
just dig into and get some basic understanding of it. I would not put my
hand in the fire that the OP is a LIR or not, but they are an ISP so I
would assume they are LIR and as such can reassign the IPs,a nd if they are
not LIR they can become one.
Anyway many of IP renting companies such as IPXO are RIPE-based, and those
who are ARIN or APNIC based also have subnets from RIPE region. If RIPE was
against subletting, the whole market would not exist with RIPE subnets.
