No, but it says the following:
From page 11 of Motorcycle News July 13 2005:

“Benelli is about to be closed down and sold off according to factory insiders. Production lines at the famous Italian firm were ordered to stop this week and it now appears that virtually all the company’s staff have been sent home as its parent company searches for someone to but the firm.

The huge Merloni electronics group has funded Benelli ever since Andrea Merloni restarted the company in the mid 1990s. However, Andrea Merloni’s father, who heads the Merloni group, says he is tired of pouring money into the firm and has decided it needs to go.

Three separate companies are rumoured to be in discussions to buy Benelli, but at the moment none have been named.

Whoever the final buyer is, the future of the TNT and the Tornado will depend on their plans.”
