Have NuCana's shares ever split?

NuCana's shares were split on a 1:25 basis on 15 April 2024. So if you had owned 25 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 NuCana shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for NuCana shares which in turn could have impacted NuCana's share price.
