Have Root's shares ever split?

Root's shares were split on a 1:18 basis on 14 August 2022. So if you had owned 18 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 Root shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Root shares which in turn could have impacted Root's share price.
