Uh, perhaps, but, more likely they will get it from ARIN and not
from the market. Further, more likely, rather than pool their money,
they'll just get individual assignments/allocations.

It's cheaper for each of them to simply get the addresses from ARIN
individually than to go to your speculative market pricing and it's
quite a bit less complicated for each of them to apply individually
than to try and convince ARIN to allocate to a consortium.
