Have Sky Metals 's shares ever split?
Sky Metals 's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 13 June 2019. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sky Metals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sky Metals shares which in turn could have impacted Sky Metals 's share price.
Sky Metals share price volatility
