It has not been possible to find an official Egyptian companies register or database that contains comprehensive company information.
The Egyptian International Trade Point (http://www.tpegypt.gov.eg/Arabic/EgyDirectory.asp) has a companies search feature of sorts, but it appears to be geared around buying and selling products rather than information about companies.
I agree with the commenters that the information source given doesn't constitute a real companies database, and I have been unable to find another.
