Qiagen (QGEN) has 1 split in our QGEN split history database. The split for QGEN took place on January 25, 2017. This was a 962 for 1000 reverse split, meaning for each 1000 shares of QGEN owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 962 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 962 share position following the split.
When a company such as Qiagen conducts a reverse share split, it is usually because shares have fallen to a lower per-share pricepoint than the company would like. This can be important because, for example, certain types of mutual funds might have a limit governing which stocks they may buy, based upon per-share price. The $5 and $10 pricepoints tend to be important in this regard. Stock exchanges also tend to look at per-share price, setting a lower limit for listing eligibility. So when a company does a reverse split, it is looking mathematically at the market capitalization before and after the reverse split takes place, and concluding that if the market capitilization remains stable, the reduced share count should result in a higher price per share.
Looking at the QGEN split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 962 today.
