    UPDATE 1-Razer's top execs offer to take firm private, valuing it at $3.2 bln

    Razer Inc said on Thursday that a group led by its top executives proposed to take the gaming hardware maker private in a deal that values the Hong Kong-listed company at HK$24.70 billion ($3.17 billion). The group led by Chairman Min-Liang Tan and non-executive director Kaling Lim, who own around 57% of Razer, are offering HK$2.82 a share for the remainder of the company, Razer said in a stock exchange filing. The consortium believes that Razer, with headquarters in the United States and Singapore, has suffered from low trading volumes and has been undervalued in Hong Kong.
