CEO Bartz Says Yahoo Open To Search Deal For ‘Boatloads Of Money’

Yahoo’s (YHOO) CEO Carol Bartz said Wednesday she would be open to striking a search deal with software giant Microsoft (MSFT) if the Wa., Redmond-based company offered “boatloads of money.”

From DJ: “If there’s boatloads of money and the right technology involved, we’d do a deal, sure,” said Bartz. “It’s that simple.”

Bartz made her comments at the seventh All Things Digital conference, known as D7, taking place this week in Carlsbad, Calif….

The future of Yahoo’s search business is a key issue for investors. Bartz and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer have talked about forming a partnership on search but the exact nature of any possible deal remains unclear.

Bartz also said Yahoo was interested in acquiring social-networking and video startups, noting that video advertising has grown sharply in recent years.
