Shares of PG&E Corp. (PCG) are continuing to fall sharply in Wednesday's after-hours session, after a judge opened the door to a rival's chapter 11 plan for the embattled company.

PG&E is also dealing with the impact of having to cut power to around 800,000 businesses and households in Northern California as it tries to reduce the threat of wildfires.

At 6:43 p.m. ET, shares of PG&E had lost 29.42%, to trade at $7.75. Volume in the late session topped 2.9 million shares.

The company's shares had finished the day's regular trading session with a 0.73% gain, to close at $10.98.

Judge Dennis Montali of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in San Francisco stripped PG&E of the sole right to propose a chapter 11 plan, clearing the way for a rival chapter 11 plan from Elliott Management and other bondholders.
