EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP)- A travel-marketing firm based in Wood River, Ill. says it will emerge from bankruptcy now that a judge has signed off on the sale of assets for $3.5 million.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/17kA5nH) reports that an East St. Louis federal bankruptcy court has approved the sale of YTB International to Jamraval Inc.

YTB is a seller of Internet-based travel services and products. It filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March.

The company’s new owner, Sam Hathi, will oversee YTB’s day-to-day operations.

YTB’s president and CEO, Andy Cauthen, will remain at the 12-year-old company in an unspecified management position.
