"1. The investment related to the acquisition of the voting rights does not
serve the purpose of execution of strategic aims or making trading profit. So
far, I have already held just below 25% voting rights in HeidelbergCement AG.
Exceeding the 25% threshold emphasizes my long-term commitment to the company,
which I consider to have a significant potential to increase in value based on
its very good market-position world-wide.
2. At present, I do not intend to obtain further voting rights by acquisition or
by any other means, within the next 12 months.

management and supervisory bodies. As far as the Annual General Meeting is at
all responsible, I will influence the appointment of administration, management
and supervisory bodies by executing my voting rights. Besides, I am member of
the supervisory board as well as of the personnel committee of the supervisory
board of HeidelbergCement AG and in this capacity, I will, by executing my
voting rights in these committees, also influence the appointments of
administration, management and supervisory bodies.
4. I do not intend to significantly change the capital structure or the dividend
policy of the company.
5. For the acquisition of the additional shares, which resulted in the excess of
the 25% threshold, Spohn Cement GmbH has utilized both own funds as well as
loans which were granted by affiliated companies."
