Hostile takeovers tend to mean the bidder pays a higher price than otherwise and the management of the target leaves shortly after completion
The result is that hostile takeovers tend to produce a worse return for shareholders of the acquiring company than friendly takeovers

Stobart can go hostile if they want but the Stobart shareholders will be more reluctant. A friendly / agreed takeover will likely do better for all parties involved
