I know very little about shares. How does an IPO close lower on it's first day?

Wouldn't someone have to have bought in at $45 and sold for lower in the same day? Why would anyone do this?

Because they think it will go even lower and want to get out before losing more? Alternatively, they may have got in at a lower price and are still taking a profit.
