Broker Biography

Eric Williams (888) 324-5888


Codiligent helps people successfully sell businesses with $2-25 million in annual revenue. We believe small and mid-market business owners deserve the same business sale expertise that large companies have come to expect. We provide a service more similar to a sell-side M&A investment banker than to a business broker, but for businesses that are smaller than what most investment banks will accept as clients.

Some of the things we do that are dramatically different than what most business brokers provide for small business sellers include:

1, The engagement starts with a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative review of the business. This not only helps to develop an appropriate pricing strategy, but it also helps Codiligent become intimately familiar with the business. This means that when buyers ask difficult questions or negotiate, Codiligent is prepared to intelligently respond.

2, Thorough, high-quality information packages are developed for the business. This helps lower uncertainty and perceptions of risk for buyers, which increases the likelihood the seller will receive a good offer. It also helps to eliminate buyers for which the business is not an appropriate match, saving business sellers time, energy, and money. Two primary packages are developed: a non-confidential introduction package and a more comprehensive confidential package.

3, For businesses that lend themselves to being acquired by an industry acquirer or a complementary business, Codiligent does exhaustive research to identify the most probable acquirers so that they can be marketed to directly, rather than relying solely on more passive forms of advertising.

4, Codiligent takes on a limited number of clients so that it can provide high quality representation to all of its clients. This is in sharp contrast to many business brokers who take on as many clients as possible, but are unable to devote adequate time or energy to any of them. Codiligent would rather take on fewer clients, but have greater success with each client.
