  Notification of voting rights transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is

Announcement according to Article 27a, Section 1 of the WpHG 
Person/company obliged to make the notification:
Name:    Spohn Cement Beteiligungen GmbH
Place:   Zossen
State:   Germany 
On 24 January 2011 Spohn Cement Beteiligungen GmbH, Zossen, Germany, notified us
pursuant Sec. 21 and 22 of the German Securities Trading Act, that they exceeded
the threshold of 25% of the voting rights in HeidelbergCement AG. 
Further to this notification, also on 24 January 2011, Spohn Cement
Beteiligungen GmbH notified us pursuant Sec. 27a of the German Securities
Trading Act of the following: 
"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, we especially took over voting rights from SC Vermögensverwaltung GmbH
(formerly Spohn Cement GmbH), that already held just below 25% voting rights in
HeidelbergCement AG. Exceeding the 25% threshold emphasizes the long-term
commitment of our shareholder Ludwig Merckle to the company. 
2. At present, we do not intend to obtain further voting rights by acquisition
by any other means, within the next 12 months. 
3. We do not intend to especially influence the appointment of administration,
management and supervisory bodies. As far as the Annual General Meeting is at
all responsible, we will influence the appointment of administration, management
and supervisory bodies by executing our voting rights. Besides, our indirect
shareholder Ludwig Merckle is member of the supervisory board as well as of the
personnel committee of the supervisory board of HeidelbergCement AG and in this
capacity by executing his voting rights in these committees, he will also
influence the appointments of administration, management and supervisory bodies. 
4. We do not intend to significantly change the capital structure or the
dividend policy of the company. 
5. For the acquisition of the shares, which resulted in exceeding the 25%
threshold, we utilized both own funds as well as loans which were granted by
affiliated companies."
