Have Genius Brands International's shares ever split?

Genius Brands International's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 9 November 2016. So if you had owned 3 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 Genius Brands International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genius Brands International shares which in turn could have impacted Genius Brands International's share price.
