Turkey put on hold a plan to sell almost 600 companies worth about $10 billion that were seized in the aftermath of a failed military coup, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.The companies form part of the more than 850 firms confiscated by the government last year and which have assets that are estimated to be worth a combined 48 billion liras($13.2 billion). The confiscated entities include three commodities-related companies owned by Turkish businessman Akin Ipek, such as gold miner Koza Altin Isletmeleri AS and coal and power producer Ipek Dogal Enerji Kaynaklari Arastirma ve Uretim AS. Other companies that feature on the list span industries from construction and energy to carpet making.Shares of Ipek's three publicly listed companies fell Thursday.
