Lap Shun Hui, owner of Joui International and the former owner of eMachines, said he has submitted a bid to buy the retail operations of computer maker Gateway Inc. for U.S. $450 million. Hui also said he would be willing to explore buying all outstanding shares in the whole company.

Hui said that to compete effectively, Gateway must separate its retail operations from its other businesses and make changes to improve its margins.

Gateway said in a statement that its board of directors will review the offer from Hui.

Gateway shuttered its 188 retail stores and now sells inexpensive PCs under the eMachines brand, which it bought in 2004, through major electronics retailers.
