On 30 July 2013, Vodafone Vierte Verwaltungs AG (formerly Vodafone Vierte
Verwaltungsgesellschaft mbH), Düsseldorf, Germany (the "Bidder"), published
the offer document for its voluntary public takeover offer (the "Takeover
Offer") to the shareholders of Kabel Deutschland Holding AG, Unterföhring,
Germany ("Target Company"), to acquire all non-par value bearer shares (ISIN
DE000KD88880) in the Target Company (collectively the “KDH Shares“ and
individually "KDH Share"). The acceptance period for the Takeover Offer
expires on 11 September 2013, 24:00hrs (local time at Frankfurt am Main),
unless extended pursuant to the statutory provisions of the WpÜG.

On 20August2013, VodafoneGroup Plc, Newbury, England (“Vodafone”), a person
acting jointly with the Bidder within the meaning of section2para.5 WpÜG,
has purchased 4,577 KDH Shares outside the Takeover Offer via the stock
exchange against payment of a cash consideration. The average purchase price
per KDH Share amounted to EUR 84.48. The highest purchase price per KDH Share
was EUR 84.50. These KDH Shares correspond to approximately 0.005% of the
share capital and the voting rights of the Target Company. Title to these KDH
Shares will presumably be transferred to Vodafone on 22August2013.
