MCU shortage looming?

As a stockholder in STmicro I have been following the huge backlog ST has in MCUs. I am hearing the lead times are so great they are not taking new orders. This sort of thing makes me nervous as we are in the early stages of a fairly substantial new system development. Anybody else concerned about this, should I be?

@will May have some info on this.

There seems to be contradictory information circulating around in the news:

"STMicro denies reports it will suspend taking MCU orders"

We have not seen an impact to MCU lead times as of now. We’ll be communicative if we hear otherwise!
