Re:Recommendation for Amstelveen Corporation’s project investment The purpose of this memo is to explain and recommend which projects Amstelveen Corporation should invest in based on capital budgeting calculations. First, I will explain if there are any contradictory recommendations and then I will give the recommended total I suggest Amstelveen to raise.
