Have WestStar Industrial 's shares ever split?
WestStar Industrial 's shares were split on a 1:50 basis on 19 April 2016. So if you had owned 50 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share.

However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for WestStar Industrial shares which in turn could have impacted WestStar Industrial 's share price.
