Can’t help you with this one but I had a similar thing with HPE going thru a complex transaction with part transforming for an instant into Seattle Spin Co and then into Micro Focus International

sorry that link didn’t work for me but if you copy/paste it, a google page will come up with that article as one of those found.

It was a taxable transaction but both the whole shares of Spin Co that resulted and the fractional CIL share of Micro Focus International were reported on the 1099B as long term that reflected my long term holding of the original HPDQ which spun off HPE so it’s a bit surprising to see yours reported as ST instead.
