Have Applied DNA Sciences's shares ever split?

Applied DNA Sciences's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 31 October 2019. So if you had owned 40 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 Applied DNA Sciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Applied DNA Sciences shares which in turn could have impacted Applied DNA Sciences's share price.
