Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz: We’ll Sell Search to Microsoft if We Get “Boatloads of Money”
A very brief update on the state of search talks between Microsoft (MSFT) and Yahoo (YHOO): Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz acknowledges the companies are talking, but says she would only consider selling search for a very large sum. Specifically, “boatloads.”
Here’s her quote, elicited during an interview at the D7 conference in Carlsbad, Calif. “If there’s boatloads of money, and there’s the right technology, and the information we would have to have, then yeah….It’s that simple.”
