Have Ballard Power Systems's shares ever split?

Ballard Power Systems's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 2 June 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ballard Power Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ballard Power Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Ballard Power Systems's share price.
