Keynote Presentation, Workshop and Roundtable Discussions

Patrick Ungashick turns the conventional wisdom about exit planning upside down. Rather than presenting “exit planning” as it’s commonly understood (i.e., the last minute scrambling many business leaders find themselves doing immediately before sale or succession) Ungashick presents a radically different approach. He asks: What makes one business more desirable than another to a prospective buyer? Why is selling a business or passing a business to a family member often so difficult and costly? How does a CEO or owner know if the decisions he or she is making today are helping or hurting the potential for a successful exit? In this workshop, Patrick Ungashick addresses how to maximize the value of a business—now and at exit.
Combining more than 30 years of direct experience, findings from national research, and entertaining real-world case studies and stories, at its core this workshop is about helping business owners and CEOs get their companies ready for exit.

Key issues explored:
• The difference between growing a business and creating value
• How to create transferable value (i.e. value that a buyer or successor can secure with little risk, cost after the leader’s or owner’s exit)
• The Seven Drivers of Transferable Value and how to assess your business’s strengths and weaknesses in each

Valuable key takeaways from this interactive workshop:
• Understanding how to maximize total business value at exit
• A prioritized checklist for taking action in each of the Seven Drivers of Transferable Value
• Transferable Value benchmarks against similar businesses

Matthew R. Price

I have grown up in the plumbing industry. My parents started Price Brothers, Inc. in 1977 and grew it from a one truck operation into what is now the leading residential new home plumbing contractor in the Charlotte, NC region. Price Brothers has been a place for me to develop my trade skills and business acumen as I have worked in various departments over the decades, such as: field operations, warehouse & inventory control, accounting, estimating, crew scheduling & dispatch, quality assurance, IT systems development, etc. After attending Rollins College in Orlando, Florida I went to work for the business full time in the early 2000’s and experienced the growth boom of the 2000’s as well as the Great Recession which followed. I helped to diversify our business during the recession with the goal of keeping our people. In 2012 I stepped out on my own as a one truck operation to do light commercial work, water filtration & treatment, and retail service plumbing, and grew the business for five years until January of 2017 when I joined with a larger outfit which managed large projects across the southeast. In mid-2018 I returned to Price Brothers with experience and wisdom which has helped me see our business and market opportunities from a unique perspective. I am the licensed qualifier for Price Brothers in both North & South Carolina with an unlimited commercial plumbing license in each state as well as a residential fire sprinkler contractor license in NC. In July of 2022 I stepped into the role of CEO to continue the legacy of our business which provides for so many families and customers. I enjoy spending time with my wife Kristy of 14 years and my two sons Holden (6) and Maddox (3), exploring the outdoors, reading, and playing music with friends as I am also a formally trained jazz drummer. My passion for teamwork and community support keeps me involved in our local youth athletics program as an advisory board member and a licensed soccer coach, and I hope that my children can embrace the lessons of working hard and giving back when they are able in years to come. I am thankful for so many whom have been mentors and teachers willing to pass along lessons in both business and in life, and look forward to continuing to learn as well as mentor others to tap into their potential and make an impact.
