    Not quite. I'd write it like this:
    "He says he's never heard of the ABC company and has nothing to do with them (or "it")."

    However, if you're dead set on keeping "no idea":
    "He says he has no idea what (or "who") the ABC company is and has nothing to do with it (or "them")."

    If you are wondering about the "what/it, who/them" thing, remember that it's dependent upon how you view a corporation or company, either as a single entity or a collection of people.
