According to Shkreli, the premium that Horizon Pharma paid to acquire Raptor was "pretty modest" and he was expecting a price tag on any acquisition deal should have been "a lot more."

As a whole, Shkreli doesn't see any "over exuberant" valuations in the space.

Shares of Raptor Pharma traded recently at $64.61, up about 8 percent on the day.
