The company isn't saying anything at the moment. If it does go ahead with a sale, though, it won't exactly be a ringing endorsement of CEO Marissa Mayer's strategy to date. She promised to "reset" Yahoo's focus back in October, but that probably won't be much comfort when the firm has dealt with evaporating profits and a string of acquisitions that did little to turn things around. If there is a deal, it won't be surprising if there's a change in leadership at the same time.
