(Reuters) - Equiniti Group said on Wednesday it received a revised offer from U.S. private equity investor Siris Capital Group to acquire the British outsourcer for about 661 million pounds ($917 million) in cash.

Siris revised its bid to 180 pence per share following discussions, London-listed Equiniti said. In early April, Siris submitted a non-binding proposal for 170 pence per share.
