SINGAPORE (Oct 10): Fresh from withdrawing its £32 billion ($54 billion) pursuit to buy the London Stock Exchange Group, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing chairwoman Laura Cha said she is unsure as to whether the Hong Kong bourse might revisit the offer in the future.

The offer – which excludes LSE’s offer to buy Refinitiv, a data and trading group, for US$27 billion ($37 billion) – was rejected by LSE.

“It’s hard to say, it’s hard to say,” she said during a panel discussion at the 59th World Federation of Exchanges General Assembly & Annual Meeting on Wednesday.
