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

Have ESSA Pharma's shares ever split?

ESSA Pharma's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 24 April 2018. So if you had owned 20 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 ESSA Pharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ESSA Pharma shares which in turn could have impacted ESSA Pharma's share price.
