Asian Tech Press (Mar. 7) -- Japanese electronics giant Toshiba Corp (TYO:6502) said Monday that chip shortages may last until March 2023 due to Ukraine crisis.

Bloomberg quoted Hiroyuki Sato, head of Toshiba's devices unit, as saying, "The sense of shortages hasn't changed at all, and we expect the current tight supply will last until March next year at the earliest."
