Leonardo Has Sold the E-Cat?

I want to know if I am reading this right. Is Rossi saying he has sold his technology. It certainly seems to be the case from the following exchange. (Emphasis added)

Dear Andrea,
i am glad to hear about the end of validation tests on 16th December…i can’t wait for the report from third party..
I must say i am really stunned by your reply to Bernie stating your partner has access to knowledge catalyst and so on….maybe this is something related to your statement about 1,5 month ago ” Leonardo Corp is no longer the same….” .
Did you sell your invention perhaps?
Thank you for your kind attention
Neri B.

Dear Neri B.:
Yes, I did, and now we are no more a small armed boat, as we were, but a Carrier.
Warm Regards,
