We're not expecting Acasti Pharma to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Acasti Pharma's shares ever split?

Acasti Pharma's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 30 August 2021. So if you had owned 8 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 Acasti Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acasti Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted Acasti Pharma's share price.
