Have Herbalife Nutrition's shares ever split?

Herbalife Nutrition's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 May 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Herbalife Nutrition shares which in turn could have impacted Herbalife Nutrition's share price.
