Razer has successfully set the Offer Price at HK$3.88 per Offer Share (excluding brokerage of 1%, SFC transaction levy of 0.0027%, and Hong Kong Stock Exchange trading fee of 0.005%), which results in Razer having a market capitalization of approximately HK$34,389 million (assuming the Over-allotment Option is not exercised).
Razer initially offered a total of 1,063,600,000 Offer Shares in the Global Offering, comprising an International Offering and a Hong Kong Public Offering.
The Hong Kong Public Offering was very significantly over-subscribed by 290.24 times of the total number of 106,360,000 Offer Shares initially available for subscription under the Hong Kong Public Offering.
