Yahoo! CFO Blake Jorgensen Says They’re Not Opposed To A Search Deal

Posted Feb 25, 2009

At an investors conference, Yahoo! CFO said today that the search engine company is not opposed to a search deal.  BI spotted him making this statement on Bloomberg today.  “The deal would have to maximize the unit?s value, Jorgensen said during a presentation today at an investor conference,” stated Jorgensen.

The talks about a search deal with Microsoft reignited when Steve Ballmer stated yesterday that Microsoft was still interested in a deal, but the new Yahoo! CEO Carol Bartz ignored discussion requests.  I think that the companies should move on and go their separate ways.  Each company has their own strategy and business plan, combining them will not take away a lot of Google’s market share for search.
