Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer signaled on Monday that she would be open to staying with the company even though no decision has been made on her future following its acquisition by Verizon.
"I love Yahoo, and I want to see Yahoo into the next chapter," she told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street."
She said AOL CEO Tim Armstrong "and I are old friends and colleagues and I very much respect him and am looking forward to working with him again."
Verizon purchased AOL's internet business last year for $4.4 billion. Armstrong will lead Yahoo's integration with AOL and Verizon.
Marni Walden, Verizon president of product innovation and new businesses, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" earlier Monday that Verizon had not yet made a decision about what role if any Mayer would have after the deal closes.
Mayer said her two immediate priorities are seeing the Yahoo sale through to its anticipated close in the first quarter of 2017 and managing the value of its remaining Asian assets.
After those issues are resolved, she said she is "very open-minded."
