Is Backup Exec 2012 supported on Windows 2012 R2 server?

We are about to build a new Backup Exec server, since we have had so many problems with the old installation after we upgraded to 2012. However I am reading that Backup Exec 2012 with SP3 is not supported on a Windows 2012 R2 OS????

 

Is that really true???

 

Thank you,
