An almost cosymplectic manifold is a -dimensional oriented Riemannian
manifold endowed with a 2-form of rank , a 1-form such that and a vector field
satisfying and . Particular cases were considered in  and .
Let be an odd dimensional oriented Riemannian manifold carrying a globally defined vector
field such that the Riemannian connection is parallel with respect to . It is shown that in this case
is a hyperbolic space form endowed with an exact locally conformal cosymplectic structure. Moreover
defines an infinitesimal homothety of the connection forms and a relative infinitesimal conformal
transformation of the curvature forms.
The existence of a structure conformal vector field on is proved and their properties are
investigated. In the last section, we study the geometry of the tangent bundle of an exact locally conformal
