This SEC filing marks the first time that Corsair has specified a potential selling price for its shares. This has been a long time coming. Two years ago is when Corsair originally filed to become publicly traded. Its initial IPO filing in April 2010, Corsair estimated it would seek to raise $86 million.

According to the Mercury News:

During 2011, Corsair earned $19.4 million on sales of $455.2 million. In 2010, the company lost $10.2 million on sale. Compared to the year before, sales in 2011 jumped 20 percent. For the quarter that ended in March, Corsair earned $3.1 million on sales of $132.5 million. Compared to the year-ago quarter, profits fell 37 percent, while sales rose 23 percent, the company's SEC filing showed.

No date has been specified for when they would begin selling shares.
