Have Aston Martin's shares ever split?

Aston Martin's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 13 December 2020. 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 Aston Martin shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aston Martin shares which in turn could have impacted Aston Martin's share price.

Share price volatility
