The stock jumped as high as $13.10 Thursday morning before slipping to $11.82.

The company can regain compliance so long as it has a closing price of at least $1 at the end of any calendar month and an average closing price of at least $1 over the proceeding 30 days.

The split shrinks the total number of shares to about 4.2 million from almost 85 million.

Pier 1 operates 965 home decor and accessories stores in the US and Canada.
