In its response, LS 2 Holdings said that it was not aware of any information that could have contributed to the unusual price and volume movements on Oct 18.

However, the company pointed out that the proposed privatisation offer of Colex Holdings by Bonvests Holdings on Oct 17 could have contributed to the share price and volume movements in the company. Colex is a company that specialises in contract cleaning and waste management.
