Have Teleflex Incorporated's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Teleflex Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Teleflex Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Teleflex Incorporated's share price.

Teleflex Incorporated share price volatility
