McLeod Russell could see a sharp fall in production by around 5.5 million kg in the current fiscal due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Its normal production volume is 52 million KG. The company had suffered production losses partially in March and wholly in April due to the lockdown. McLeod losses are expected to be Rs. 85 crore this fiscal and that is likely to put pressure on the stock. Even as debt mounts, the company is under severe stress. It is best avoided.
