SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT AND REPRESENTATIONS
I, the undersigned, understand that NOCERA, Inc. a Nevada Corporation (the “Company”) is offering up to $10,000,000 in units (the “securities”) each consisting of one preferred share and one C Warrant and one D warrant of common stock of NOCERA, Inc. (the “Units each consisting of one common share and one C Warrant and one D warrant”) at $2.50 per unit in the Company. The C Warrants consist of the right to purchase one share for $2.50 per share for three (3) years from the date of the unit purchase and the D Warrants consist of the right to purchase one share of common stock for $5.00 for a period of three (3) years from the date of the unit purchase. The offering is made in reliance upon an exemption from registration under the federal and state securities laws provided by Rule 506 of Reg. D of the Securities Act of 1933 and such other applicable exemptions from registration, for which the common stock may be qualified.
I hereby offer to purchase 80,000 units each consisting of one preferred share and one C Warrant and one D warrant to purchase common stock as described above, and upon acceptance by you, agree to become a shareholder of the Company and to contribute to the Company as set forth herein. In order to induce the Company to accept my offer, I advise you as follows:

I hereby acknowledge that the Company has made available to me the opportunity to ask questions of, and receive answers from the Company and any other person or entity acting on its behalf, concerning the contents of the Private Placement Memorandum (“PPM”) and the information contained in the corporate documents and to obtain any additional information, to the extent the Company possesses such information or can acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense, necessary to verify the accuracy of the information provided by the Company and any other person or entity acting on its behalf.|
|(3)||Representations and Warranties. I represent and warrant to the Company (and understand that it is relying upon the accuracy and completeness of such representations and warranties in connection with the availability of an exemption for the offer and sale of the Securities from the registration requirements of applicable federal and state securities laws) that:|
|(1)||I understand that the Units each consisting of one preferred share and one C Warrant and one D warrant nor the components thereof have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (The Act), or any state securities laws.|
|(2)||I understand that if my subscription offer is accepted and the Units each consisting of one preferred share and one C Warrant and one D warrant are sold to me, I cannot sell or otherwise dispose of the units, the preferred shares, the common stock, or the warrants, unless they are registered under the Act or the state securities laws or exemptions therefrom are available (and consequently, that I must bear the economic risk of the investment for an indefinite period of time):|
|(3)||I understand that the Company has no obligation now or at any time to register the units, preferred shares, common stock, or warrants under the Act or the State securities laws or obtain exemptions therefrom.|
|(4)||I understand that the Company will restrict the transfer of units, preferred shares, common stock, or warrants in accordance with the foregoing representations.|
I agree that any certificates representing the Units each consisting of preferred share, and one C Warrant and one D warrant, or the components thereof, will contain and be endorsed with the following, or a substantially equivalent, LEGEND:
“This certificate in the Company has been acquired pursuant to an investment representation by the holder and shall not be sold, pledged, hypothecated or donated, or otherwise transferred except upon the issuance to Company of a favorable opinion by its counsel and the submission to the Company of other evidence satisfactory to and as required by counsel to the Company; that any such transfer will not violate the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and applicable state securities laws.”
I am at least twenty-one years old and a citizen of Taiwan (country).

(1) The offer or sale is made in an off-shore transaction;
(2) No directed selling efforts are made in the United States by the issuer, a distributor, any of their respective affiliates, or any person acting on behalf of any of the foregoing.
Subscriber agrees that:
(1) the offer or sale of securities, if made prior to the expiration of a one-year distribution compliance period (in six months beginning in 2008), shall not be made to a U.S. person or for the account or benefit of a U.S. person (other than a distributor);
(2) the offer or sale, if made prior to the expiration of a one-year distribution compliance period, is made pursuant of the following conditions:
(a) The purchaser of the securities (other than a distributor) certifies that it is not a U.S. person and is not acquiring the securities for the account or benefit of any U.S. person or is a U.S. person who purchased securities in a transaction that did not require registration under the Act;
(b) The purchaser of the securities agrees to sell such securities only in accordance with the provisions of Regulation S CFR (§230.901 through §230.905 and Preliminary Notes), pursuant to registration under the Act, or pursuant to an available exemption from registration; and agrees not to engage in hedging transactions with regard to such securities unless in compliance with the Act;

(e) Each distributor selling securities to a distributor, a dealer (as defined in section 2(a)(12) of the Act (15 U.S.C. 77b(a)(12)), or a person receiving a selling concession, fee or other remuneration, prior to the expiration of one-year distribution compliance period in the case of equity securities, sends a confirmation or other notice to the purchaser stating that the purchaser is subject to the same restrictions on offers and sales that apply to a distributor.
These securities, if acquired for the issuer, a distributor, or any of their respective affiliates in a transaction subject to the conditions of CFR §230.901 or §230.903 are deemed to be “restricted securities” as defined in §230.144.
