WARSAW Aug 12 (Reuters) - Europe's No.2 copper producer, Poland's KGHM, reported an 8 percent annual fall in its stand-alone net profit in the second quarter due to lower global metals prices, it said on Wednesday.

The state-controlled miner booked net earnings of 612 million zlotys ($195.42 million), slightly higher than the 598 million zlotys expected by analysts polled by Reuters.
