This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your National Grid PLC ADR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Grid PLC ADR shares which in turn could have impacted National Grid PLC ADR's share price.
