Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer on Wednesday said she is focused on making the company the best it can be.
"That's being focused on discovering, being the digital information guide that we've always been, and really thinking through how can we inform, connect and entertain our users," she told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" one day after Yahoo announced it would explore strategic alternatives.
Specifically, Mayer said Yahoo would continue to focus on mail, search and its Tumblr service as global platforms and push its news, sports, finance and lifestyle verticals in particular geographic areas.
"Making Yahoo the very best version of itself we can for our users, for our advertisers is really what's going to serve our shareholders best," she said.
Yahoo's shares were more than 7 percent lower Wednesday morning following her comments. (Get the latest quote here.)
