Have Cara Therapeutic's shares ever split?

Cara Therapeutic's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 15 January 2014. So if you had owned 2 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 Cara Therapeutic shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cara Therapeutic shares which in turn could have impacted Cara Therapeutic's share price.
