In April 2018 Poyiadjis submitted an investment offer to acquire the Omonia FC. On 24 May 2018, he decided to withdraw his offer to acquire the Omonia FC, stating that in his opinion the acquisition process lacked transparency and the Omonia FC board had already predetermined the outcome in favor of Stavros Papastavrou before the general assembly vote.
In 2014, Poyiadjis and Martua Sitorus, the co-founder of Wilmar International formed a partnership to create the largest biofuel power plant in Japan. The plant’s 20-year feed-in tariff is valued at US$1.5 billion. In 2012, Poyiadjis began a venture to build the first independent power producer on the Island of Cyprus but due to the Greek and Cypriot economic crisis the project changed course resulting in a biofuel power plant in Japan.

In 2005, Poyiadjis voluntarily returned to the United States to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit security fraud. Poyiadjis’ proceeds from the sale of AremisSoft stock were $150 million. The case reached a global settlement when Poyiadjis agreed to pay $200 million. According to Lawyer Magazine, this is the largest SEC case of its kind. In July 2010, Poyiadjis was sentenced by Judge Laura Taylor Swain to three years of probation. At Poyiadjis’s sentencing, Judge Swain stated that she took into consideration “the extent of Mr. Poyiadjis’s cooperation,” and “Mr. Poyiadjis’s remorse, as reflected both in his words and actions.” Lycourgos Kyprianou remains a fugitive from justice in the United States.
According to Forbes magazine, in 1997 Poyiadjis met Lycourgos Kyprianou, a fellow Greek Cypriot with a software company called AremisSoft.

Poyiadjis, became president and vice-chairman in 1998, and became CEO in 2000 (Kyprianou became chairman and chief technology officer). By August 2000, Poyiadjis and Kyprianou owned about 30% of the company, and in Feb. 2001, they became co-chief executive officers. Irwin L. Jacobs was one of AremisSoft’s largest shareholders. Poyiadjis resigned from AremisSoft on 30 September 2001. In 2005 Poyiadjis founded Platinum Capital Partners, Inc a holding company for the Poyiadjis Family Office with investment activities primarily focused in technology, private equity, real estate, and special situations.

On 4 October 2001, the SEC filed a civil enforcement action against AremisSoft. On 19 December 2001, a federal grand jury in the Southern District of New York filed an indictment charging Poyiadjis and Kyprianou with securities fraud in connection with AremisSoft. The funds under question were in bank accounts on the Isle of Man.
