BP PLC ADR's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 October 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BP PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BP PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted BP PLC ADR's share price.
