On Friday, October 2, we were very delighted to welcome Mr. Harm Ohlmeyer, CFO of adidas, as our guest speaker. Mr. Ohlmeyer hold an interesting talk on the topic "Corporate Finance in Times of a Global Pandemic" as part of the MSc. class "Capital Market Theory". During the talk, he shared how adidas managed to obtain strong credit ratings and successfully issued corporate bonds with a total value of €1.5 bn, despite the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to thank Mr. Ohlmeyer for the inspiring presentation and his willingness to answer the students' questions openly. We look forward to hopefully welcoming him again soon at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management.
