Saga's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 13 October 2020. So if you had owned 15 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share.

However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Saga shares which in turn could have impacted Saga's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Saga's shares have ranged in value from as little as 118.5p up to 743.8257p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
