Forget Nabisco, these days it's all about getting money from those clickbait slideshows!

US private equity giant KKR wants to take the owner of Business Insider private in a deal that values the European publishing company at nearly $8 billion.

KKR (KKR) on Wednesday offered investors in Axel Springer €63 ($71.40) per share in a deal that has support from the company's largest shareholder, Friede Springer, and CEO Mathias Döpfner.
