Announcement according to Article 27a, Section 1 of the WpHG 
Person/company obliged to make the notification:
----------------------------------- 
Name:    UBH Holding GmbH
Place:   Zossen
State:   Germany 
On 24 January 2011 UBH Holding 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, UBH Holding 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, our subsidiary Spohn Cement Beteiligungen GmbH 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
or
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 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, Spohn Cement Beteiligungen GmbH has utilized both own funds as well
as loans which were granted by affiliated companies."
