Tanco Holdings Bhd said it is unaware of any reasons for the surge in its share price, except for the progress in its pharmaceutical and construction ventures.

Tanco also said that one of two contracts worth RM41.5 million in its construction segment that was secured from Sri Medan Holding Sdn Bhd for the East Coast Rail Link project has commenced and is in progress.
